T. S. Eliot's Dramatic Pilgrimage a Progress in Craft as an Expression of Christian Perspective
1991 0-88946-688-2
Examination of Eliot's major contributions to verse drama and his adoption of dramatic methods to express his maturing religious beliefs in his plays. Explores Eliot's movement from presenting saintly solitude as the path to spiritual renewal, to offering communal affirmation as an equally viable avenue to peace with self, society, and God. Treats Eliot's biographical and theological development, emphasizing the philosophical and theological convictions influencing his plays. Studies the development of his use of characterization, verse technique, and elements of stage craft within the thematic movement from solitary suffering to communal affirmation, and from love that betrays to love that redeems.
