T.S Eliot was a great poet who invented the new style of poem that ideas are expressed through beautiful imaginations. Such large amount of allusion and extended metaphor were never used before him; therefore, he was largely criticized in his early period of writing. Many people commented on him as that his poem were meaningless, which in that no consistent flow of ideas expressed. He insisted on that style and eventually developed the mature technique to use allusions and extended metaphors and express profound ideas at the same time. However, when other people used the same style as his. He turned out to criticise that particular person for the same reason that he was criticised for. It seems unbelievable because he is such a supporter who invented for such new style of poem. His action of criticising other poets who use his style seem to be hard to imagine.In the Selected Essays, he believes that Dorne’s poem is a bunch of unconnected thoughts, which only contains emotions and impressions without any consistent thought. This is exactly Eliot himself was criticised for, which created the biggest question that why he question his own style.
