The Waste Land: Discussion & Commentary, Part III

Dr. White’s concluding remarks about T. S. Eliot include a reading of a portion of Ash Wednesday, a poem that in White’s analysis concerns a soul struggling towards Christ’s truth. Also, it is a poem filled with references to Mary, Christ’s blessed mother. Dr. White describes The Fourth Quartet as well, a poem that Eliot wrote toward the end of his career, a time during which he also wrote a series of plays. One of these. Murder in the Cathedral, dealt with Thomas Becket and was once staged on the very altar where Becket’s death took place. White closes the series with a description of Eliot’s marriages and a Q and A session.
