T.S. Eliot is the most important literary critic of the modern age. The present paper deals with the impersonality in the works of T S Eliot as it particularly affects his own work. In the concept of objective correlative his doctrine of poetic impersonality finds its most classic formulation. He believes that since the poet cannot transfer his emotions or ideas from his own mind directly to his readers, there must be some kind of mediation – “a set of objects, a situation, chain of events. A great work of art is nothing but a set of conceptual symbols or correlatives which endeavour to express the emotions of the poet and these symbols constitute the total vision of the creative artist.
