An Evening with TS Eliot, by Dr Gareth Reeves and Dr Jason Harding


The Centre for Poetry and Poetics held an evening to celebrate the poetry and influence of T.S. Eliot. His poetry – and that of later poets such as Donald Davie and Hart Crane – was read by two scholars who specialise in Eliot’s life and works. [MP3 version]

The reading featured some of Eliot’s best-known work, such as Four Quartets, as well as lesser-known poems such as his “Landscapes” sequence. It also included readings from later poets such as Donald Davie and Hart Crane, whose works retain traces of Eliot’s own unique style. The poetry was read by two scholars who specialise in his life, works and legacy.

Dr Gareth Reeves has written extensively on British and American poetry of the twentieth century, including a book on T.S. Eliot’s The Waste Land. Dr Jason Harding is a member of the Eliot Editorial Project, producing authorised, fully annotated editions of The Complete Prose. Most recently he has edited the collection, T.S. Eliot in Context .
