Content of main article

I am new to Citizendium, and this is my second attempt at expanding an article. The stub I found included links to unwritten articles on some of T S Eliot's major works. As will be clear, I thought it appropriate to include something brief on these in the main article on the poet. Is that in accord with Citizendium policy?

I would welcome any other feedback so that I can avoid any mistakes in my approach when writing, or adding to, other articles.

Yep, this looks pretty good, and brief discussions of individual works are totally germane to the main article. The literature workgroup is in desperate need of authors, and also hasn't worked out precisely how the articles of a given author should be divided up.
My personal sense is that there should be an article on each of the major (or most influential) works: in this case, 'Waste Land', 'Prufrock' and 'Four Quartets', and probably 'Hollow Men' and 'Ash Wednesday' too. It would then be useful to have a page on 'Criticism', on 'Drama', and a page on 'minor works', though I'm not wild about that name. Feel free to add a section to the main page about the reception and interpretation of Eliot's works.
It's not a big deal, but you will want to eventually move the bibliography to the subpage-- which can totally be an annotated bibliography. Nice work! Brian P. Long 11:34, 13 April 2008 (CDT)
