Participants of this one-day session will attend to the practices of scholarly annotation in the context of Eliot’s poetry and criticism. The session will combine discussions of Eliot’s own thoughts about criticism and annotation with reflections on the practices and theories used by contemporary editors to annotate his work. Drawing on the new editions of his poems, prose, and letters (both in print and digital), we will pose questions about the purposes and uses of annotation, and about how contemporary scholarship aligns with and departs from modernist answers to these questions.
