In response to Catherine E. Paul's question
about Eliot's french poems, you might want to read
Donald Hall's interview (for the Paris Review).
This isn't a source of translations or a *scholarly
treatment* but I do recall that Eliot mentions these
poems specifically, and talks about his motivations
for writing them. I think he was out to prove something
to himself about his poetic abilities if I remember
the interview correctly.
I'm not certain which year or issue of the Paris
Review it iss in, but I believe
somewhere around summer of '69 would be about right.
Hope this is at least interesting if not helpful.
