T.S. Eliot, the 1948 winner of the Nobel Prize in Literature, is one of the giants of modern and Modernist literature, highly distinguished as a poet, literary critic, dramatist, and editor and publisher.
Four Quartets are four interlinked meditations with the common theme being human’s relationship with time, the universe and the divine. In describing his understanding of the divine within the poems, Eliot blends his Anglo-Catholicism with mystical, philosophical and poetic works from both Western and Eastern religious and cultural traditions.
