Lyrical Elements in T.S. Eliotâ€™s Poetry
Keywords:Lyrical, Romanticism, Emotions, Personality
This paper aims to bring out the lyrical and/or romantic elements in T. S. Eliotâ€™s Poetry. Eliot considered himself a Classicist in literature. But it can be noted that his poetry is not altogether devoid of lyrical elements. We can find traces of romanticism, glimpses of his personality, use of romantic imagery and lyrical diction, in his poems. Thus, the main purpose of this paper is to highlight and appreciate Eliotâ€™s poetry from a lyrical/romantic perspective.
