T. S. Eliot – Part V

The fifth, compact installment in the 2015 Broadstairs series on Eliot witnesses Dr. White exploring meter and prosody by way of his consideration and reading of some of Mr. Eliot’s Practical Cats, illustrating how spoken daily language can be related to a poetic form. This, the doctor maintains, is Eliot’s unique achievement as a poet. In the second section of the lecture, Dr. White examines the Four Quartets, each of with has an idea, a theme, a memory, a historical foundation, and a place, and the fourth part of each of which constitutes – the doctor argues – the greatest lyric poetry of the 20th century.
