I have a guess.
Perhaps Eliot suppressed them for the same reason he
suppressed AFTER STRANGE GODS. Anti-semetic concerns.
If true they may remain inaccessible. It is curious
that they have never been published. They would make
a natural conclusion to his whole Elizabethan corpus,
and perhpas provide insight into his think for his
own verse drama of the time.

Subject: Eliot and Granville-Barker
I have to write a thesis on what Eliot and Granville-Barker thought about
I checked out "Eliot on Shakespeare" by Charles Warren -- it says the 1937
Shakespeare lectures have never been published (when he wrote the book), and
that some excerpts can be found in On Poetry and Poets. But I need the whole
text for research.
Anyone can help? I'm asking again because it's really important. Perhaps, my
professor might not have known that they haven't been published. Yet, it's
my problem to sort things out now.
Have they really never been published?
I apologise for annoying you further with this.
All the best,
