The Magus and the Moor. explores Eliot’s debt to black culture and its origins stemming from his St. Louis background, the anthropological studies made while he was a student at Harvard, and his noted artistic debt to Othello. Robert Fleissner uses these origins as a starting point, weaving in considerations of archetypal elements to create this fascinating study of one of the twentieth century’s greatest writers.
Contents: The book deals in detail with T.S. Eliot’s legacy to an African heritage as revealed in African-American culture but basically in universal, archetypal values in general (partly in Jungian terms).
