  • Mumford and Sons Opener in Burgettstown, PA - May 24th, 2017 - T.S. Eliot Reading

    The opening reading for the 2017 Mumford and Sons tour. Parts of "The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock" by T.S. Eliot and read by T.S. Eliot. Let us go then, you and I, When the evening is spread out against the sky Like a patient etherized upon a table; Streets that follow like a tedious argument Of insidious intent To lead you to an overwhelming question ... Oh, do not ask, “What is it?” Let us go and make our visit. And indeed there will be time For the yellow smoke that slides along the street, Rubbing its back upon the window-panes; There will be time, there will be time To prepare a face to meet the faces that you meet; There will be time to murder and create, And time for all the works and days of hands That lift and drop a question on your plate; Time for you and t...

The original audio was pretty bad, but I cleaned it up as best I could. The thing that comes through most clearly is that nobody reads Eliot like Eliot.

  • T.S. Eliot

    T. S. Eliot is perhaps best known for his clever verse made popular in the musical, “Cats!” But his extensive writings were acknowledged in a 1948 Nobel Prize for Literature! In 1927 Eliot was confirmed in the Church of England. But it was in 1930 with his poem, “Ash Wednesday,” after he became an Anglican, that his poems included biblical references, including the quote “shall these bones live?” from Ezekiel 37. Eliot believed his “finest” achievement was his religious poem, “Four Quartets”—with broad themes of inspiration from the Bible. In an allusion to Acts 2 he wrote: “The dove descending breaks the air with flame of incandescent terror. . .” And his 1927 poem, “Journey of the Magi,” is based on the story of the magi traveling to worship Jesus found in the Gospel of Matth...

Filmed Live at The International Anthony Burgess Foundation in Manchester 28th February 2014 The Waste Land Words by T.S. Eliot Music by Anthony Burgess (European première) Jonathan Best narrator Rebecca Lea soprano Elaine Tyler-Hall director Conrad Marshall flute Adrian Wilson oboe Richard Casey piano Jennifer Langridge cello Joe Reiser sound and lighting technician A collaboration between The International Anthony Burgess Foundation and Psappha ‘The Waste Land is a miraculous mediator between the hermetic and the demotic. It is, curiously when one considers the polyglot learning it carries, essentially a popular poem, outgoing rather than ingrown, closer to Shakespeare than to Donne. It was Pound who said that music decays when it moves too far away from the dance, and poetry decays when it neglects to sing. The Waste Land sticks in one's mind like a diverse recital performed by a voice of immense variety but essentially a single organ: it sings and goes on singing.’ Anthony Burgess ‘IMMENSE. MAGNIFICENT. TERRIBLE.’ This 1922 review of The Waste Land articulates the enduring challenge of the poem more than ninety years later. The most significant and influential English-language poem of the twentieth century, it draws on a multitude of literary, philosophical, religious and, importantly, musical allusions to form a disorientating new whole. Fractured and fragmentary, Eliot’s aesthetic response to what he felt was a desperately atomised culture is above all a poem of voices. These voices span millennia and nations, encompassing the tragedies of classical antiquity, the ritual chants of the Upanishads, and the vernacular of London pubs and typing pools. The degree to which the poem truly epitomises spiritual, political, and cultural malaise is still an open question, and its undeniable power lies in its expression of urban modernity as at once sterile, vertiginous and alienating. © Martyn Hampton

Below is a part-summary, part-paraphrase in modern language of the famous poem "The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock." "Let us go, you and I--let's split this dull tea party." That's what I should say to that pretty woman sitting on the couch. If I had the courage, I could say to her, "Let's go where people in our social class normally never go--that's what I should tell her. Let's visit a seedy part of town where people have real lives instead of the dull and phony lives we rich folks have. I sometimes walk through poor neighborhoods just to study the people there--they seem more real, more interesting." I hate this tea party--the idle chitchat, with nothing real or meaningful being said! Look at those ladies over there, going from the parlor to the music room. They are talking about a Renaissance artist while passing each other in the hallway. They think they are so smart, but their words are all so superficial! Wow, look at the fog. Reminds me of a cat. I have a good imagination! But I'm afraid to express my cat analogy. I'll just keep it in my head. People might laugh at me if I say it aloud. They'll think I'm weird. Time passes slowly at this tea party...there is always time to prepare a phony face so I can meet the other phony faces here, the other fake selves...just facades, nothing real. Do I dare do anything bold here--or bold with my life? The years are passing, and I don't seem to be living a very exciting life. More years will pass. I can see how I'll be. Bald, too thin! I dread what they'll say about me. Do I dare say anything of substance? Do I dare do anything different? People will think I'll being too bold--as if I'm disturbing the universe. I already know these types of people. I know these tea parties too well. Boring and phony! If I try anything new, I might disturb people. I might be rejected by my peers. I dare not take risks. That woman on the couch looks pretty in that shawl--fancy bracelets, I see. She's hot. I like her perfume. I think she said something to me--something like "How are you?" Maybe she's inviting me to have a conversation! But if I talk to her, I'll be expected to keep the conversation trivial. Chitchat is what people expect at tea parties. Suppose I try to say something of substance, something deep? She might reject me. She might say, "That is not what I meant at all when I asked 'How are you?'" She might say, "Listen, buddy, keep it superficial. I wasn't inviting you to be serious! Don't you know how these tea parties work? Talk about trivial things, ok?" I should have been born a crab or lobster since I can't function as a human. Too hard, too complicated! I prefer the ocean. Is it worth risking conversation with a pretty woman if in the end I'm misunderstood? Do I dare show the real me--like having a magic lantern throwing my nerves up on a movie screen? Too public. No, I can't risk it. Would it have been worthwhile if--well, it is impossible to say just what I mean! My words are inadequate... I'm not bold. I'm not like Hamlet, who has noble qualities and eventually takes action. I'm never decisive. I'm just an ordinary Joe--not important. I wonder if people think Joe is my first name? I use the name "J. Alfred Prufrock" since it is fashionable to do this with a name. My friend F. Scott Fitzgerald is doing the same. Ironic that "rock" is in my last name. I don't feel solid as a rock. Do I dare eat a peach and get stains on my shirt? Life is full of dangers like that. I'm not bold at all. I want to escape to my fantasy world of mermaids. They enjoy freedom on the water. How I envy them! They are singing like those Sirens in The Odyssey, but I don't think those mermaids will sing to me since I'm probably not important enough to interest them (which is weird since they are mermaids in my own world of fantasy--you would think I could control them a little). I need to work on self-esteem. Ostensible Setting or Scenario: Prufrock is at a tea party ("taking of a toast and tea...marmalade...the teacups...") in an upper class home ("among the porcelain") in a city with oyster-shells (Boston?). Women are in the room. But that is not the real setting, in a sense. Real setting: we are inside Prufrock's head (stream-of-consciousness technique--that means random and confused thoughts) Time: "soft October night" in the era of the magic lantern (forerunner of slide projector), perhaps 1900-1910 Protagonist: Prufrock is well-dressed (morning coat, high collar, rich necktie), perhaps in his 20s (he fears growing old, which suggests he isn't old yet--thinks he'll be bald in the future)

Elaine Paige performs 'Memory' from the musical Cats, Andrew Lloyd Webber's well-loved musical based on the poems of T.S Eliot - a song performed by the character she played in the show's original London production, Grizabella.

Twitter: https://twitter.com/catsmusical Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/CatstheMusical/ ---------- About: Based on T. S. Eliot’s Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats, the show is set amongst a larger- than-life junkyard playground and is alive with our favourite feline characters including Rum Tum Tugger, Mr. Mistoffelees, Macavity, Jennyanydots, Old Deuteronomy, Grizabella and Skimbleshanks. The Jellicle Cats come out to play on one special night of the year – the night of the Jellicle Ball. One by one they tell their stories for the amusement of Old Deuteronomy, their wise and benevolent leader, who must choose one of the Cats to ascend to The Heaviside Layer and be reborn into a whole new Jellicle life.
