Ashford ENG 318 Week 5 Discussion 1 Tradition and the Individual Talent

Tradition and the Individual Talent1st Post Due by Day 3. In his famous 1920 essay, “Tradition and the

Individual Talent,” T.S. Eliot writes:
“[Tradition] involves a perception, not only of the pastness of the past, but of its presence; the historical

sense compels a man to write not merely with his own generation in his bones, but with a feeling that the whole of the literature of Europe from Homer and within it the whole of the literature of his own country has a simultaneous existence and composes a simultaneous order.”

Eliot, T. S. (2009, October 13). Tradition and the individual talent (1920). Retrieved from http://www.poetryfoundation.org/learning/essay/237868

As a writer, it is important to understand and be able to articulate the tradition in which you write. This does not mean that you cling to the past; rather, it means that the writing of the past necessarily informs and converses with the writing you do in the present. In this discussion, consider the readings from this course in any or all genres that you think most inform your writing. What is it about these pieces that shape how you think about the elements of literature and influence how you produce it?

Your initial post should be at least 250 words in length. Support your claims with examples from required material(s) and/or other scholarly sources, and properly cite your sources using APA style.
