GREENSBORO — If you paid attention in English class, you’ll remember T.S. Eliot.

Eliot is probably best known for “The Waste Land,” one of the most important poems of the 20th century. The American-born poet also wrote plays and, in 1948, was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature.

But serious scholars of literature also know Eliot as a prolific and thoughtful critic who wrote hundreds of essays, reviews, columns and lectures on a wide variety of topics.

Anthony Cuda, an associate professor of English at UNCG, is part of a mammoth effort to edit and publish every word of prose Eliot ever wrote.
