FOUR QUARTETS with Flora Pethybridge and Ashley Ramsden.
Over a period of six years, at the time of World War II, T. S. Eliot published four poems, Burnt Norton, East Coker, The Dry Salvages, and Little Gidding. In 1943, they were published together as the Four Quartets.
The four poems are interlinked meditations, on our relationship with time, the universe, the divine, and a few other things too. Cultural references are many, as are wide-ranging allusions to philosophy, poetry, and human relationships.
Together, core-singer and choir leader, Flora Pethybridge, and storyteller and speaker of poetry, Ashley Ramsden, bring these extraordinary poems to life, enlivening the rich passages with new meaning. The speaking and presenting of the Four Quartets has become a life practice for them and a compass for daily living.
