Some of you may recall that in April 2008 I began a blog series dedicated to my Favorite Poets from A to Z.  It’s taken a while, but I’m finally getting around to the letter E and and the incomparable T.S. Eliot.  In the course of the past year I’ve added over two dozen Eliot works to the Crisis Chronicles Online Library, including his first two collections — Prufrock and Other Observations and Poems — in their entirety, as well as what some consider his most important poem, The Waste Land.

Rather than try to put into words why I’ve chosen T.S. Eliot, I prefer to let his writing speak for itself.  For your convenience, here’s a listing of every Eliot poem in the Online Library.  Click the title of your choosing to go to that work:
