T.S. Eliot, whom Editor McClatchy calls "the most important poet of the twentieth century . . . the most famous and the most influential" is an elegant and dramatic performer of his own work. As Eliot's voice rises and falls, listeners hear the internal rhymes and rhythms that might go unnoticed by those reading silently. This collection includes many of Eliot's best-known poems ("The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock," "The Waste Land," and "Ash Wednesday," to name a few), but no matter how familiar listeners are with Eliot's body of work, hearing him read these classics will enrich their understanding. This attractive production includes a companion book with the text of the poems and a biographical commentary by McClatchy. J.C.G. © AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC 05/ JAN 06]
