What Is Poetry By Ts Eliot?
The Whitman-Dickinson Paradox
Start reading. The places to start are Whitman and Dickinson. You should read with someone, memorize and favorites you can remember, no matter how long they seem.
Little Gidding: A Poem of Fire
The fourth and final poem of Four Quartets, Little Gidding, was the work that led to the awarding of the 1948 Nobel Prize in Literature. The poem is about a small religious community in England. The first three poems of the Four Quartets: BurntNorton, East Coker and The Dry Salvages, had taken air, earth and water as their subjects, and Little Gidding is a poem of fire with an emphasis on purification and purgation. The second section of the book contains some of the most acclaimed passages ever written by the author, including a ghost of Dante and others.
The hooded figure and the chaos of God
The hooded figure is an allusion to the biblical passage where Jesus and his two disciples walk to the tomb in Sepulchre, and then they are taken to a chaotic mess of the world. It is not clear if poetry should be the guiding principle for all people.
"Preludes": A Poem about Drudgery, Waste and Isolation
The four poems in "Preludes" were written by T.S. Eliot when he was in his 20s. They were collected in the first book by the author. "Preludes" is about the drudgery, waste, and isolation of modern urban life. The unnamed city in which the poem is set is a dirty place where people are not thinking.
The Hulme Movement
The movement was founded by ideas first developed by English philosopher and poet T. E. Hulme, who spoke of poetry based on an absolutely accurate presentation of its subject.
The Waste Land
The Waste Land is a poem written by Thomas Stearns Eliot and was first published in 1922. It is a pastiche of different verse forms. The poem is very long and very long in length.
The improvised music of Eliot
Feelings of happiness are brought about by spring. The flowers are reborn from the soil and the climate begins to warm, all set to a score improvised by an orchestra of birds. The spring depicted by Eliot is not joyous.
