Considered one of the most influential forces in the first half of twentieth-century literature, Nobel-laureate Eliot proves himself one of the great interpreters of performance reading. His sonorous voice lulls the listener into a hypnotic state which makes this complex material really accessible. Eliot combines a sensitive vocal rise and fall with lilting rhythms to expressively evoke the texts. Consequently, these readings provide invaluable insight into the works which is not always evident on the printed page. This worthy collection, which includes works from both Eliot’s existential, antiromantic period and his later phase of serenity and repentance, provides a happy balance between thought and feeling.
