T.S. Eliot
T.S. Eliot

(Sept. 26, 1888 - Jan. 4, 1965)

Thomas Stearns Eliot studied at Harvard, and spent much of his academic life learning ancient languages in order to read various religious texts. He wrote one of his moust famous poems, "The Love Song of Alfred J. Prufrock," when he was only 22, and shocked many traditionalist of his day. Eliot's other works include "The Waste Land," "Four Quartets" (considered by himself alone to be his masterpiece), and the widely known "Old Possum's Book of Practical Cats" - which later became the basis for the Andrew Lloyd Webber musical "Cats." He died in 1965 of emphysema, and his ashes were scattered in the church in his ancestors' hometown of East Coker.
