Published in the fiery days of World War II, Four Quartets stands as a testament to the power of poetry amid the chaos of the time. Let the words speak for themselves: "The dove descending breaks the air/With flame of incandescent terror/Of which the tongues declare/The only discharge from sin and error/The only hope, or the despair/Lies in the choice of pyre or pyre--/To be redeemed from fire by fire./Who then devised this torment?/Love/Love is the unfamiliar Name/Behind the hands that wave/The intolerable shirt of flame/Which human power cannot remove./We only live, only suspire/Consumed by either fire or fire." --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
I submit this quotation as one of the finest lyrics written in our time ... I strongly recommend a reading of Mr. T. S. Eliot's Four Quartets. -- The New York Times Book Review, Horace Gregory --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

small pebbles on a broader road where flashes of light feed us even as our sun feeds the plants.
