Prufrock's Creator Vilified

A "miserable creature" exuding a "stink of enfeeblement", whose poems are “spittoons of failure”. And, my goodness, he even worked as a bank clerk for a while.

That's Elias Cannetti, passing judgement on T.S. Eliot in his just translated memoirs, Party In The Blitz. Read the Times review here.
