Jeremy Irons Reads T.S. Eliot’s Four Quartets

By Harriet Staff

Jeremy Irons

You have only 4 days left to hear Jeremy Irons read T.S. Eliot’s masterpiece Four Quartets! From BBC Radio 4:

Four Quartets is the culminating achievement of T.S. Eliot’s career as a poet. While containing some of the most musical and unforgettable passages in twentieth-century poetry, its four parts, ‘Burnt Norton’, ‘East Coker’, ‘The Dry Salvages’ and ‘Little Gidding’, present a rigorous meditation on the spiritual, philosophical and personal themes which preoccupied the author. It was the way in which a private voice was heard to speak for the concerns of an entire generation, in the midst of war and doubt, that confirmed it as an enduring masterpiece.

Don’t wait, go now!
