One symptom of the decline of culture in Britain is indifference to the art of preparing food.–T. S. Eliot


Thomas Stearns “T. S.” Eliot was a playwright, literary critic, and an important English-language poet of the 20th century. Although he was born an American, he moved to the United Kingdom in 1914 (at age 25) and was naturalized as a British subject in 1927 at age 39. He started the poem that made his name, The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock, in 1910, and published it in Chicago in 1915. It is regarded as a masterpiece of the modernist movement. He was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1948.
