The hypothesis of my paper has been that Eliot's attitude towards contemporary man and his society suffered no striking reversal in mid-career from pessimism to optimism, but instead expanded in a line of consistent growth. In order to ascertain the validity of this hypothesis, I have traced Eliot's attitude throughout his entire oeuvre.
