Tradition and the individual talent by deepti Gupta

  1. 1. Presented BY Miss Deepti Gupta critical theory M.A. English 3rd sem. G.D.C. Rewa M.P.
  2. 2. About Thomas Stearns Eliot  He was born in 26 1888,September Missouri U.S. and died January 4,1965,Kensington, London (U.K.) T. S. Eliot, was an essayist, publisher, playwright, literary and social critic. One of the twentieth century's major poet
  3. 3. Tradition and the Individual Talent Tradition and the Individual Talent” is one of the more well-known works that Eliot produced in his critic capacity. It was published in 1919.  Modernism and Hegemony.
  4. 4. Tradition doesn’t mean a blind adherence to the ways of the previous generation. Tradition cannot be inherited; it can only be obtained by hard labor. Tradition can only obtained by those who have historical sense
  5. 5. The Concept of Tradition Theory Of Depersonalizati on The Conclusion of Summing Up Three parts of this essay Tradition and Individual Talent"
  6. 6. •It doesn’t mean to know the past as a whole without any discrimination. •The sense of tradition doesn’t mean that the poet should know only a few poets whom he admires, a particular age, or period which he likes. This is a sign of immaturity and inexperience.
  7. 7. -“poetry is not a turning loose of emotion, but an escape from emotion; it is not the expression of personality, but an escape from personality.” -Eliot doesn’t deny personality or emotion to the poet. Only he must depersonalize his emotions. -The poet can know what is to be done if he acquires a sense of tradition; the historic sense which makes him conscious not only of the present but also of the present moment of the past.
  8. 8. Criticism of Eliot 1. Its limited definition of what constitutes the canon of tradition. 2. The “mind of Europe” reeks of Euro centrism.
  9. 9. Thank you
