In 1922, T S Eliot remarked "As for The Waste Land, that is a thing of the past... I am now feeling my way toward a new form and style". This would have its fullest issue in Four Quartets, the literary culmination of Eliot's spiritual autobiography. The course will study the four inter-related poems, placing them in the context of Eliot's broader career and inner journey.
