In 1948, when T. S. Eliot was heading to Stockholm, Sweden to receive the Nobel Prize, an American reporter asked which of his books did they award the Nobel Prize for.
“I believe it’s given for the entire corpus,” Eliot replied.
“And when did you publish that?” the reporter said.
“It really might make a good title for a mystery — The Entire Corpus,” Eliot said.
