Could you give a few specifics regarding that? I would imagine that most audiences would be less than unified in their enthusiasms to begin with.

The 1931 portrait vis-a-vis Eliot's timeline 

"Ash Wednesday," a poem about Eliot's religious awakening, is published.

A Year at Harvard
Eliot accepts a yearlong teaching position at Harvard, his alma mater. The professional opportunity also gives him a break from his failing marriage to Vivienne, who remains in England while Eliot travels to Massachusetts. Eliot is instantly a well-liked professor, frequently inviting students over for tea.

In the 1931 portrait, Eliot looks confident, reassured.
