'This is Mr Eliot's first volume of collected essays since his "Homage to John Dryden" (1924), and he considers it his most important prose book since "The Sacred Wood" (1920). "For Lancelot Andrewes" consists of seven essays which are selected from Mr Eliot's work of the last two or three years, and which he believes show some consistency. The subjects cover a wide range of literature, theology and philosophy; but taken together they have a unity of their own' (from the front panel of the dustwrapper).
