In his old age T. S. Eliot said on a number of occasions that the American experience of his childhood and youth had had the deepest influence on his poetry. This is the first book to explore in detail how Eliot's writings at once preserved and reacted against his complex American heritage: his intellectually and socially prominent family, their strong Unitarian culture and their experience in nineteenth-century St Louis and Boston. Besides demonstrating how Eliot's preoccupation with theatricality and self-consciousness descends from a line of American writers with similar impulses, the book pursues the theme of doubleness in rhetoric and the self and traces the influence on Eliot of the philosopher F. H. Bradley. Analysing major poems from 'Prufrock' through The Waste Land, Sigg draws upon Eliot's early philosophical writing, essays and reviews to reveal Eliot's early poetry both as a distinct entity and as a stage in his development.
She's all alone; lost. She drinks her problems away. She hides herself with makeup. Hanging out with friends she would never hangout before. Going to clubs and getting lost in the music and hooking up with strangers. She's a girl she never thought she would become. She fell apart and It's all because of Vince. Before Vince she was a straight A student. She was a dreamer but now what is she? She reminisces the past searching for hope. She's losing her mind all because she is keeping one little secret; hidden and it all has to do with Vince. So what is that secret she is hiding and can she get herself back together?
