T. S. ELIOT: A Major New Research Project
“The Estate of T. S. Eliot, Faber & Faber, and the Institute of English Studies, University of London, are delighted to announce the commencement of the T. S. Eliot Research Project (1 March 2009). With three years of funding from the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) and the T. S. Eliot Estate, the Project will co-ordinate, for the first time, the editing of the poetry, plays, prose and correspondence of perhaps the most influential writer of the twentieth century.”
“The first parts of this comprehensive series to appear will be two volumes of the Letters, co-edited by Valerie Eliot and Hugh Haughton. The new edition of volume 1, up to the end of 1922, will benefit from more than 20 years of new discoveries and scholarship, and volume 2 will take the story up to the end of 1925, the year Eliot joined Faber. Volume 3, edited by the General Editor of the series, John Haffenden, will cover the years 1926-1928.”
