T. S. Eliot and the Heritage of Rome and Italy in Modernist Literature

DEADLINE FOR PROPOSALS: NOVEMBER 20, 2011
An International Symposium dedicated to exploring relations between the culture of Rome and Italy and Modernist Literature, with a special attention to the work of T. S. Eliot.
T. S. Eliot was a connoisseur and an admirer of the cultures of Ancient Rome and Renaissance Italy. The symposium topic deals with one of the most interesting aspects of Eliot's exceptionally complex and erudite poetry, and that is the deep impact that the literature and culture of Rome and Italy had on his work and on Modernist Literature in general.
