In , Eliot became a British citizen and about the same time entered the Anglican Church. Eliot has been one of the most daring innovators of twentieth-century poetry.

Despite this difficulty his influence on modern poetic diction has been immense. In Ash Wednesday and the Four Quartets this higher world becomes more visible; nonetheless Eliot has always taken care not to become a "religious poet".
In his essays, especially the later ones, Eliot advocates a traditionalism in religion, society, and literature that seems at odds with his pioneer activity as a poet. But although the Eliot of Notes towards the Definition of Culture is an older man than the poet of The Waste Land, it should not be forgotten that for Eliot tradition is a living organism comprising past and present in constant mutual interaction.

Bradley, and studied Sanskrit and Buddhism. The title character is tormented by the difficulty of articulating his complex feelings.
Prufrock is a perfect gentleman and tragic in his conventionality. He has heard "the mermaids singing" but is paralyzed by self-consciousness - "I do not think that they will sing to me.
Prufrock has not the qualities of a person, he is a fragmented voice with a name. He seems always to be saying: "That is not what I meant at all.

These quartets represent the four seasons and four elements. Eliot took in it greater liberties with ordinary colloquial speech. What I should hope might achieved, by a generation of dramatists having the benefit of our experience, is that the audience should find, at the moment of awareness that it is hearing poetry, that it is saying to itself: "I could talk in poetry too!
