Comments

Dramatic poem about Girolamo Savonarola (1452-1491), the great moral reformer, by the mother of T. S. Eliot. Eliot's six-page introduction, on "History and Truth" and "Dramatic Form," curiously does not mention his mother or any history of this work. On the front paste-down is the engraved calling card of Mrs. Henry W. Eliot, which is inscribed above her name "Compliments of the Author."
