CHAPTER ONE—THREE FIGURES: T.S. ELIOT, F.R. LEAVIS, GEORGE ORWELL
1.Eliot’s remarks on this subject are categorical. Thus for him education must “develop a wise and large capacity for orthodoxy, to preserve the individual from the solely centrifugal impulse of heresy.” The Criterion, X, (July 1932), p. 771. Even the administration of education should be in strictly religious hands, “I mean that the hierarchy of education should be a religious hierarchy. The universities are far gone in secularization.” “Modern Education and the Classics” in Essays Ancient and Modern, p. 161.
2.Notes towards the Definition of Culture, p. 104.
