It is always something of a revelation to listen to a poet reading his own words, and these tapes are no exception. Eliot clearly and evenly characterises and reveals the voices of some of his most important works in this excellent reading. 'The Waste Land' caught the imagination of the age with its powerful emotional impact. Eliot felt that the modern Western city had become a sterile desert wasteland, and in it life had become a sham pretence, with no content but stale conventionality. The 'Four Quartets' express the poet's whole-hearted acceptance of the Christian faith. Each poem describes a meditation which leads to a reconciliation with the burden of the past.
