Four Quartets

 

The last major verse written by the Nobel laureate, including “Burnt Norton,” “East Coker,” “The Dry Salvages,” and “Little Gidding.”

Horace Gregory

The poems must be read for the quality of their emotion and its meaning - and I think I am not wrong to say that the Four Quartets (without being in the least Wordsworthian) represent the best poetry of their kind since Wordsworth wrote The Prelude. For those who wish to take heart as against others who are convinced that poetry was among the earliest casualties of the present war, I strongly recommend a reading of Mr. T.S. Eliot's Four Quartets. Books of the Century; New York Times review May, 1943
