dc.description.abstract <p>This essay explores the way incarnation allows T.S. Eliot to renegotiate and redistribute themes of time, age, life, and death from his pre-conversion to post-conversion poetry. The incarnation, especially its dispensation of time, is a paramount part of Eliot's conversion. I posit that incarnation drove Eliot to Christianity because incarnation represents a divine disruption of time. This disruption bridges time and timelessness, here and there ,and life and death. Eliot's eventual rest in the Chalcedonian form of incarnation, therefore, provides a resolution of and not a divergence from his poetry previous to his conversion.</p>
