The program for the second annual T. S. Eliot International Summer School at the University of London (July 10-17) is now online (http://ies.sas.ac.uk/events/TSE/index.htm).

The Summer School will be opened by Sir Tom Stoppard and will bring together some of the most distinguished international scholars of T. S. Eliot and modern literature. Directed by Ronald Schuchard and open to all readers of Eliot, the School will present two lectures each morning on aspects of Eliot's life and writing. Ten afternoon seminars are devoted to a week-long, in-depth study of Eliot's work. An extensive social program will include poetry readings by Robin Robertson and prominent actors of the Josephine Hart Poetry Hour, walking tours of Eliot's London and literary Bloomsbury, and excursions to Burnt Norton, Little Gidding, and East Coker.

Application and scholarship forms are available on the website, where brochures and posters may be downloaded. The School is limited to 110 students; admission to seminars, which are listed on the website, is on a first-come basis. A limited number of bursaries (scholarships) will be available to deserving international students.
