Entire Corpus

While traveling to Stockholm to receive the Nobel Prize in 1948, T. S. Eliot was interviewed by a reporter who asked the famed poet for which of his works he was being honored. Eliot replied that he believed it was for the entire corpus. "And when," the journalist asked, "did you publish that?"

[Eliot later noted that "The Entire Corpus" might have made a fine title for a mystery story.]
