T.S. Eliot’s Four Quartets (Read by Alec Guinness)

A few days ago I read what is often considered T. S. Eliot’s most important work of poetry: Four Quartets. I was captivated by the poem and deeply moved by its rhythm and beauty. I’ve read before Eliot’s The Waste Land, another of his well-known poems, but I found Four Quartets far more captivating (though I plan to revisit The Waste Land soon, and you can listen to a recording of it here).

I found so much beauty and joy in reading this that I wanted to share it here for your enjoyment as well. Happy Saturday!

You can read the full poem here.

And while you do, enjoy this reading by Alec Guinness:
