Name: T.S. Eliot's "Four Quartets"
Date: April 24, 2018
Time: 7:00 PM - 8:00 PM EDT
Event Description:
John Farrell, principal in Maine's groundbreaking Figures of Speech Theatre, recites from memory Four Quartets, a suite of poems often considered T.S. Eliot's greatest. This recitation affords audiences an opportunity to immerse themselves in 1,000 lines of poetry exploring humankind's relationship with time and with experiences itself. Eliot completed Four Quartets in 1941, as Britain slid into the abyss of World War II, and he feared that civilization itself might perish in the coming years. Writing at the height of his artistic powers, Eliot packed into the suite of poems a summation of his views on poetry and art, on mystical experience, and on the never-ceasing search for the divine. The performance will be followed by an informal conversation with John Farrell.
