T.S Eliot (short biography)

I found this short biography of T.S. Eliot on Youtube. It's pretty short, but it's really informative especially on his early life. You learn about his marriage, which was unfavored by his family. He worked at bank in London for several years. The video describes The Wasteland as Eliot's most revolutionary work, especially astounding his contemporaries. The meaning is still being debated today; in addition, it is divided into five different parts. He alludes to many writes and includes several different genres. Many suggest it's related to WWI and the proceeding depression it caused. At then of his life, he was the director of a London publishing house and recruited amazing poets. Here's the video!
