One looks forward to viewing how the critics look at the widened spectrum. IMHO, what was published in Eliot's lifetime will remain primary. The secondary (that now constitutes Vol. 2) will be viewed as interesting sidelights that will surely help illuminate the more obscure, seedy aspects of life hinted at in Vol. 1.
Thanks, CR, that is the UK Amazon. This morning I tried again and Vol Two comes up on stateside Amazon. Shipping from there for US sales is much less of course.
I noticed in one of the reviews for which you offered a link the reviewer commented on "growing the Eliot canon" or words to that effect. This is a somewhat unsettling notion, as much of what was never previously published was not meant to be published and should not be considered on equal footing with what was. It will be interesting in that respect to see where the body of Eliot criticism goes with these texts.

Just to partly answer my own question, Vol 1 is available for pre-ordering on Amazon for substantially less than the Faber members price of 34 pounds. Don't know what the status of Vol II is, but presumably it will follow....

Just looking on the Faber site at the forthcoming collected and uncollected poems texts edited by McCue and Ricks and wondering again if these volumes will have a North American publisher or sales site. Is anyone in the know on that?
