Surabhi Aashish Soni


Thomas Stearns Eliot, the man of letters, had an unfathomable religious sensibility. His quest for belief holds together the diversified elements of the modern man’s fragmented being and gives a sense of direction in his life. The paper aims to explore the life span of T. S. Eliot, his work and age which leads to the various stages of social and economic changes in mindset of modern society. His work which is known to be milestone of the literature implies the strong impact on the contemporary writer. His writing generated the interest in the society to blend and open up the thoughts of east and west. It gives the acute sense of divinity which indulge into the ocean of the positivity and peace of mind in the modern but deviated society.
