"Winner of the Nobel Prize in Literature, widely honored for his poetry, criticism, essays, and plays, T. S. Eliot exerted a profound influence on his contemporaries in the arts as well as on a great international audience of readers. Four Quartets was the last major verse he wrote and the culminating work in his distinguished career as a poet." from the cover.
These are on a humongous list of books that I am told I must read before I die. So I tried. The Waste Landstrike one! Four Quartetsstrike two! I think my team needs a pinch hitter. Both are classic examples of Eliots unintelligible poetry. Theyre like reading Finnigans Wake backwardword by word. I never did cotton much to poetry anyway.
