本の要約

"A Commentary on T.S. Eliot's Four Quartets. If the representative English novelist of the 20th century is Jame Joyce with his "Ulysses" (1922), then the representative English poet has to be T.S. Eliot, not so much with his "Waste Land" (also 1922) as with his mature "Four Quartets", which followed from 1935 to 1942 at first in four separate volumes, named after four places in England and America, "Burnt Norton" (1936), "East Coker" (1940), "Dry Salvages" (1941), and "Little Gidding" (1942).
They were then published together in 1943 under the musical metaphor of a quartet as "Four Quartets", but they are also united under the combined Christian themes of mysticism and meditation, looking from time to eternity as present in "the still point of the turning world".

著者のプロフィール

Peter Milward was born in London on October 12, 1925, and educated at Wimbledon College (a Jesuit high school). He entered the Society of Jesus in 1943, and after various studies he went on to specialize in the Classics and English at Oxford University. He came to Japan in 1954 and after further studies was ordained priest in 1960. From 1962 onwards he has taught English literature at Sophia University in Tokyo. In addition to founding the Renaissance Institute, the Hopkins Society of Japan and the Chesterton Society of Japan, he has published some 400 books, mostly as textbooks for Japanese students, many of them translated into Japanese, but now most of them out of print. Several of his books, especially those on the drama of Shakespeare and the poetry of Hopkins, have been published in England and America. Even in retirement he is still teaching and writing, as he enters his 88th year (or beiju).
