Macavity's Not There: TS Eliot in the 21st Century

He inspired the musical Cats, but can TS Eliot's poetry still have relevance today? Michael Alexander investigates. From July 2009.

As a major project begins to edit everything he wrote, author and critic Michael Alexander explores where Eliot, and poetry in general, stand in national culture.
