T. S. Eliot's Anthropology: Ritual and Aesthetic Experience

  • Jūratė Levina (Speaker)

Activity: Talk or presentation typesInvited talk


A one-hour lecture presenting a phenomenological-structuralist reading of Eliot's philosophical work (1911-1916), his anthropological papers (1913-1926), and selected criticism on Shakespeare (on Hamlet in particular; 1919-1937), highlighting in his thinking the development of a phenomenological conception of literary aesthetics, effectively based on the notion that lived experience is embedded in language.
