  1. T.S. Eliot(1888 – 1965) Nick DiPreta Alex Wysota

  2. Why Is He So Important? • The Nobel Prize in Literature 1948 • Written some of the most horrid descriptions of city life. • “Beauty is in the eye of the beholder” • Expressed disillusionment of a younger post WWI generation

  3. Preludes (I) The winter evening settles down With smell of steaks in passageways. Six o’clock. The burnt-out ends of smoky days. And now a gusty shower wraps The grimy scraps Of withered leaves about your feet And newspapers from vacant lots; The showers beat On broken blinds and chimney-pots, And at the corner of the street A lonely cab-horse steams and stamps. And then the lighting of the lamps.

  4. Preludes (IV) His soul stretched tight across the skies That fade behind a city block, Or trampled by insistent feet At four and five and six o’clock; And short square fingers stuffing pipes, And evening newspapers, and eyes Assured of certain certainties, The conscience of a blackened street Impatient to assume the world. I am moved by fancies that are curled Around these images, and cling: The notion of some infinitely gentle Infinitely suffering thing. Wipe your hand across your mouth, and laugh; The worlds revolve like ancient women Gathering fuel in vacant lots.
