If you listen to him speak, you can hear his fake british accent
But its a fine B-Side
Poetry after Shakespeare and Milton is an "acquired" and fake art, much like the trans-Atlantic accent is an acquired and fake accent. It is no surprise to me that a weak, feminine, aristocratic fag would practice this "art" in this "accent".

I'm Canadian and my uncle lived in Canada until he was 40, then he went and lived in Britain for four years. When he came back, everyone in their family had gained somewhat of an English accent (and, funny enough, they didn't even know they had it).
Eliot moved to London in 1914 and lived there for the next 51 years of his life. The recordings of his voice date from the 40s and later. He had been living in London for about thirty years.
His "fake" or "trans-atlantic" accent, whatever you want to call it, was likely a mix of his American accent which he never entirely lost, and the English accent which he picked up while he lived in England.
inb4 some cockney idiot claims that Eliot's accent is fake because it isn't the same as his

But this ruling is sure to include you.
Actually, everybody so far is wrong.
You guys have no idea how English sounded sixty years ago. It is, after all, the most quickly changing language in the world. And dig this individual accents have changed even more than the language as a whole, ESPECIALLY IN THAT DARN MELTING POT THAT IS MODERN LONOND ALLAH AKBAR, erm, erm
