Four Quartets by T.S. Eliot (hardback)


Author: T.S. Eliot

A poetic search for the nature of time,  healing and understanding which only gains power as the years pass - 'That crown which he set on his lifetime's effort', as Ted Hughes said.

Four Quartets is the culminating achievement of T. S. Eliot’s career as a poet. This edition is based on the design made by Giovanni Mardersteig for his letterpress edition of 1960 and  was published to mark the seventy-fifth anniversary of its first publication in the UK by Faber & Faber in 1944.

‘Throughout these poems there is also the invention of new rhythms, of unimagined possibilities in the movement of language . . . He is perhaps more original and inventive in rhythm than any other poet in English.’ Delmore Schwartz

‘The most original contribution to poetry that has been made in our time.’ Edwin Muir
