In what one scholar called “the literary event of the decade,” on 2 January 2020, Princeton University Library opened up more than 1,100 letters that the Nobel-Prize-winning poet T.S. Eliot wrote over the course of three decades to an American speech professor and amateur actress named Emily Hale.

The day became even more newsworthy when, later that morning, Harvard University released a letter that Eliot had written in 1960, denying he had ever been in love with Hale. Now scholars are delving into the trove of material, and reporting that the collection will forever change what the world has known about one of the 20th century’s greatest poets.
