Sample text

They are excellent bits of scholarly ribaldry. ”51 Eliot, in turn, reacted right away by writing a letter of complaint to Pound in February 1915: I have corresponded with Lewis, but his puritanical principles seem to bar my way to Publicity. I fear that King Bolo and his Big Black Kween will never burst into print. I understand that Priapism, Narcissism etc. are not approved of, and even so innocent a rhyme as . . 52 Eliot transforms Lewis’s queasiness about overtly offensive language into a teasing charge that Lewis’s “puritanical principles” will effectively keep him from finding the “Publicity” he desires.

A major line of continuity between these two bodies of work is to be found in their mutual and persistent blending of memory and desire, history and sexuality, the past and eros. That is, as with the Bolo poems, in Eliot’s canonical texts we find a prevailing tropological substructure in his readings of the past which insists that approaching the enigma of anteriority means simultaneously reading desire. We find, then, a historical and mnemonic poetics of desire, and an eroticized, sensual poetics of history and memory, where memory and desire function analogically as inseparable aspects of Eliot’s modernist historiography.
