Summary
G. Douglas Atkins here offers a consideration of T.S. Eliot's essay as a form of embodied thinking. A combination of literature and philosophy, the genre of the essay holds within itself a great tension--that between truth and creative prose. And, as Atkins explains, these conflicting forces of truth and creativity exist not only within the literary format itself but also within the writers and their relationships with the genre, making essay writing a wonderfully enriching "impure art." Exploring the similarities between Eliot's prose and poetry with the art of essay writing, Atkins discovers similar patterns of Incarnational thinking that emerge in each. In so doing, he establishes the essayistic nature of the great poem Four Quartets and provides a reflection on how the essay in all its impurity functions as incarnational art, an embodiment of truth. --From publisher's description
