I decide I will look at one of CR’s posts, with the intention of trying to take seriously and respond to seriously one of his comments on Eliot. The term “earth's tenant” suggests at least the aroma of promising some content.
And what do I get; the fellow has nothing better to do than type out some lines that everyone on the list has easy access to. What a vapid bore.
P.S. Some of the lines copied are in fact worthy of comment; apparently CR is too indifferent to Eliot’s poetry to have anything to say about it.
From: T. S. Eliot
