The Hollow Men and Four Quartets Read by T S Eliot
Listen as English poet T. S. Eliot reads his own poem, “The Hollow Men.” His poignant, dramatic recitation will help you understand the poem in a way that isn’t possible through simply reading it silently. Poetry is meant to be heard!
(Background music is from Vincent Persichetti’s composition, “The Hollow Men, for trumpet & string orchestra, Op. 25.”)
“The Hollow Men” alludes to Joseph Conrad’s work Heart of Darkness (E2.4 focus text).
The book shown above is a collection of Conrad’s writings including the E2.4 focus text, Heart of Darkness. We have not yet reviewed the other material included in this collection.
T. S. Eliot reads Four Quartets
Don’t miss this lovely reading of this four-part poetic meditation on man’s relationship with time, the universe, and the divine. No one reads it quite like the poet himself!
