    Eliot's experiences as an air raid warden in the Blitz power the poem, and he imagines meeting Dante during the The Poetry Quartets book bombing. Despite Orwell's jive-talk, though, "Four Quartets" is considered by many critics to be one of the most important works of poetry of the twentieth century. These moments also rely on the idea of Krishna in the Bhagavad-Gita that death can come at any moment, and that the divine will is more important than considering the future.

    English Literature. Louis affected me more deeply than any other environment has ever done. See how long you can last without getting anxious. The idea that history is a flush, that the canon of English language poetry was largely created by and for white males and so has a built-in obsolescence, is pitifully shallow and ultimately pernicious. During these years, Eliot also did a good deal of book reviewing and public lecturing, largely for financial reasons.

    For instance, though Ransom negatively criticised The Waste The Poetry Quartets book for its "extreme disconnection", Ransom was not completely condemnatory of Eliot's work and admitted that Eliot was a talented poet. Four Quartets is useful, also, because it demonstrates the loosest narrative emphasis possible in a poem that attempts to achieve and maintain the durability and permanence traces of high art. After all, where's the deeper meaning in that? And then lines of poetry may come into being: not from the original impulse but from a secondary stimulation of the unconscious mind. One project he had in mind was writing a play in verse, using some of the rhythms of early jazz.

The whole work is, in fact, the most authentic example I know in modern poetry of a satisfying religio-poetic meditation. Despite his having written some of the most avant-garde poetry of his time, his basic conservatism became increasingly overt, as shown in his famous declaration ina year after he had The Poetry Quartets book a British subject and had been confirmed in the Church of England, that he was a "classicist in literature, royalist in politics, and anglo-catholic in religion.
