Abstract

Eliot wrote three of the Four Quartets while WWII raged around him. In the midst of this destruction, Eliot meditates on man’s relationship with time and the divine, turning to various poetic and mystical works in his search for understanding. In his spiritual journey, he recycles the language, images, and symbols of St John of the Cross, such as ‘the ten stairs’ on ‘the mystical ladder of divine love.’
