T.S. Eliot's erotic poetry

Previously unpublished intimate poems by TS Eliot are among those included in the latest comprehensive second volume of his poetry out later this week.

Under the general title, 'To The Tall Girl" they are addressed to his last wife Valerie, who was indeed tall at 5 foot eleven.

The collection is annotated for academic study - and edited by Jim McCue and, probably the greatest of living literary critics, Sir Christopher Ricks.

I asked him where a new reader should start with Eliot.
