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

1930 
"Ash Wednesday," a poem about Eliot's religious awakening, is published.

1932
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.
