In response to the quote from Randall Jarrell, you began a series of posts on the objective correlative to prove that Eliot uses this technique throughout his works.
I'm not sure you get Jarrell's point.
Jarrell's not _really_ saying that Eliot's poetry has no references/allusions to other works, nor is he _really_ saying that Eliot doesn't use various well-thought out intellectual devices, such as the objective correlative, to express emotion in art.
At root, Jarrell is dismayed that Eliot's body of work is frequently thought of (and taught in universities) as being highly cerebral, "difficult poetry" (which I guess, it often is) without _also_ seeing the work as that of a highly emotional, troubled man who uses his poetry to exorcise his demons. It's the difference between "The Thinker" and "The Scream."
Jarrell wants us to hear the scream hidden behind the thinker.
