From where else are the new scholars to come?

Still, this is a student and one must encourage such endeavors even though a student's perspective will always be limited by his or her limited experience and understanding.
The Norton Anthology is a standard compilation used in colleges to study periods of literature. Introductory and basic but if one reads it cover to cover one does get a good dosage of a period's prose and poetry, albeit edited. Not the best but not a bad starting place. The ideal of course is that the student wants more after reading a writer and goes forth into the promised land on his or her own.
As I said, encourage such stufents ventures and be compassionate of the young eager for poetry.

Sorry, CR, found this pretty underwhelming - readable style, yes, but rather stating the obvious, and very thin on any review of any Eliot commentary, other than this 'Norton Anthology' (which I've never read.)
