Lines from Lockdown: ‘Little Gidding’, by Venetia Bridges

It feels like we’re at something of a turning point in the Covid-19 crisis, with many countries starting to emerge from lockdown and yet the future feeling uncertain. Today’s #LinesFromLockdown reading from Dr Venetia Bridges speaks to that feeling through T.S. Eliot’s ‘Little Gidding’, a poem which draws on medieval literature to put a wider perspective on matters of life, death, and uncertainty.
