Overview

Four Quartets by T. S. Eliot

The last major verse written by Nobel laureate T. S. Eliot, considered by Eliot himself to be his finest work

Four Quartets is a rich composition that expands the spiritual vision introduced in “The Waste Land.” Here, in four linked poems (“Burnt Norton,” “East Coker,” “The Dry Salvages,” and “Little Gidding”), spiritual, philosophical, and personal themes emerge through symbolic allusions and literary and religious references from both Eastern and Western thought. It is the culminating achievement by a man considered the greatest poet of the twentieth century and one of the seminal figures in the evolution of modernism.

I've always thought Four Quartets the best of his major verse works. Challenging, to be sure, but clearer and more meaningful than The Wasteland (which Eliot himself dismissed as "rhythmic grumbling"). Each poem, I think, is better than the last. A handsome edition.

I bought it due to a reference of this author while reading the book: Full Catastrophe Living by Jonn Kabat-Zinn.If you like to delve into spirtual issues; Four Quartets is an inspiring book to read and enjoy.
