  • 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...

    “A cold coming we had of it, Just the worst time of the year For a journey, and such a long journey: The ways deep and the weather sharp, The very dead of winter.” And the camels galled, sorefooted, refractory, Lying down in the melting snow. There were times we regretted The summer palaces on slopes, the terraces, And the silken girls bringing sherbet. Then the camel men cursing and grumbling and running away, and wanting their liquor and women, And the night-fires going out, and the lack of shelters, And the cities hostile and the towns unfriendly And the villages dirty and charging high prices: A hard time we had of it. At the end we preferred to travel all night, Sleeping in snatches, With the voices singing in our ears, saying That this was all folly. Then at dawn we came down to a t...

Live stream recording - 2014-11-11 - [English + Dutch] - (video also at http://vimeo.com/debalie/tseliot ) T.S. Eliots legendarische gedicht The Waste Land is alweer bijna een eeuw oud en fascineert nog mateloos. De dichter neemt je mee, van Dante’s Inferno naar de met peuken bezaaide oever van de Theems, nu eens in archaïsche taal, dan weer in plat cockney. Hij springt van fragment naar fragment, van gruwelen naar ijdelheden en weer terug, zoals wij tegenwoordig door een krant bladeren of door een Facebookfeed scrollen. De dood van een wereldbeeld, zeiden commentatoren, het einde van de grote verhalen. Maar welke diagnose stelt Eliot precies in misschien wel het beste gedicht ooit? En wat als die ook voor ons geldt? Terwijl heel Europa het einde van de Eerste Wereld herdenkt, kijken wij naar Eliots beeldschone commentaar op de periode van desillusie die volgde. We laten Eliot ons een wereld tonen die aan scherven ligt. Bovendien kijken we naar onze eigen tijd. We zijn maar al te bekend met sterk gemonteerde, fragmentarische beelden; flarden van nieuws, meningen en verhalen. Wellicht kunnen we iets van onszelf herkennen in Eliots dichtregels. Samen met academici en kunstenaars pakken we de scherven van Eliot weer op; we onderzoeken hun betekenis en trekken conclusies over het nu. En bovenal gaan we genieten van een prachtig stuk literatuur. Tijdens dit programma geeft dr. Jane Lewty een stoomcursus in het begrijpen van Eliot. Vervolgens zullen Xander van Vledder en Linde van den Heuvel een theatrale lezing van The Waste Land houden onder regie van Nina Spijkers. Ter afsluiting geeft Jaïr Stranders een slotcommentaar. http://www.debalie.nl/agenda/programma/the-waste-land/e_9757081/p_11677998/ http://www.debalie.nl

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)

“A cold coming we had of it, Just the worst time of the year For a journey, and such a long journey: The ways deep and the weather sharp, The very dead of winter.” And the camels galled, sorefooted, refractory, Lying down in the melting snow. There were times we regretted The summer palaces on slopes, the terraces, And the silken girls bringing sherbet. Then the camel men cursing and grumbling and running away, and wanting their liquor and women, And the night-fires going out, and the lack of shelters, And the cities hostile and the towns unfriendly And the villages dirty and charging high prices: A hard time we had of it. At the end we preferred to travel all night, Sleeping in snatches, With the voices singing in our ears, saying That this was all folly. Then at dawn we came down to a temperate valley, Wet, below the snow line, smelling of vegetation; With a running stream and a water-mill beating the darkness, And three trees on the low sky, And an old white horse galloped away in the meadow. Then we came to a tavern with vine-leaves over the lintel, Six hands at an open door dicing for pieces of silver, And feet kiking the empty wine-skins. But there was no information, and so we continued And arriving at evening, not a moment too soon Finding the place; it was (you might say) satisfactory. All this was a long time ago, I remember, And I would do it again, but set down This set down This: were we led all that way for Birth or Death? There was a Birth, certainly We had evidence and no doubt. I had seen birth and death, But had thought they were different; this Birth was Hard and bitter agony for us, like Death, our death. We returned to our places, these Kingdoms, But no longer at ease here, in the old dispensation, With an alien people clutching their gods. I should be glad of another death.

Eliot's poem, "The Wasteland": April is the cruelest month, breeding / Lilacs out of the dead land, mixing / Memory and desire, stirring. "We are going to speak of, this evening, the things that stir us," Smith said. The April 23 event, Mixing Memory and Desire: An Evening of Music, Poetry, Sound and Remembrance, was presented by WNYC's Spinning on Air and hosted by David Garland. Smith was joined on stage by composer-musicians Jesse Paris Smith and Eric Hoegemeyer (of Brooklyn's Tree Laboratory). Their mission that evening: to honor the chaos and transformation of spring through performances of both original pieces and interpretations of works by Emily Dickinson, Walt Whitman, W.G. Sebald and more. WATCH THE FULL SHOW HERE: http://bit.ly/1fv4eFi
