Event Series Event Series: Four Quartets by T.S. Eliot

Four Quartets by T.S. Eliot SOLD OUT

June 18 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

featuring Hilary Lithgow, Teaching Professor of English

The celebrated, 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.

This Great Books group will meet outdoors (with a rain back-up site) and read much of Eliot’s poem aloud. Due to the special set-up, we will not be able to offer virtual seats at these sessions

Meeting Dates and Times: Tuesdays, June 18 and 25 | 10:00 am-12:00 pm

Cost: $40, includes a copy of the book shipped to your home

 Register online or by calling 919-962-1544.
