T.S. Eliot was born in St. Louis, Missouri, in 1888, and he died in 1965. His family had originally come from New England. Eliot went to Harvard University, where he received his B.A. in 1909 and his M.A. in 1910. In 1914, Eliot moved to London, England, and he lived there for the next 50 years. Eliot was married twice. His first marriage was very unhappy, but his second was very happy. Eliot was friends with Ezra Pound, who was largely responsible for “The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock” being published in Poetry in 1915. Some critics think that Eliot was the first of the Modernist poets. Eliot was very religious and conservative. In fact, he once said that he was ‘”a classicist in literature, royalist in politics, and anglo-catholic in religion.”‘ He was also apparently an anti-Semite (Kennedy).
