Explanation from The Tradition and The Individual Talents

Explanation 02: No poet, no artist of any art, has his complete meaning alone. His significance, his appreciation is the appreciation of his relation to the dead poets and the artists. 

    These lines have been quoted from T.S. Eliot’s great essay, Tradition and the Individual Talents. Here, he has emphasized on the value of Tradition.

   Eliot points out that, no writer has his value and significance in isolation. To judge the work of a poet, we must compare and contrast his work to the work of the poets of past. No poet can be valued alone. His conception of tradition is a dynamic one. It is constantly changing, growing and becoming different from what it is. A writer in the present must seek guidance from the past. When a new work of art is created the whole tradition is modified though slightly. The relationship between the past and the present is not one-sided, it is a reciprocal relationship. 

    Indeed, by applying this process we can form an idea of what is really individual and new in a new work of art.
