Hello Rick, Thanks for pointing at Kirk's book, which I like. Kirk writes that the Criterion "intended to assist in the recovery of the common cultural patrimony of Europe", and this is indeed the starting point of my book. In it, I interpret this common cultural patrimony as one of European humanism, investigating Eliot's relation with authors like Curtius, Benda, Hofmannsthal, Mann, ValÚry and Ortega and reviews like Nouvelle Revue Franšaise, Revista de Occidente and Die Neue Rundschaue in order to outline a common European orientation and shared ideas about the European cultural legacy. As Harding writes in his 2002 book, "few critics have explored his [Eliot's] intention to use the Criterion to nourish intellectual exchange between an international fraternity of men of letters, within Europe" - it is here that I hope my study will be of some interest. Regards, Jeroen.
