The poems which form T S Eliot’s Four Quartets, one of the supreme literary achievements of the twentieth century, take their title and inspiration from four places, each of which had a special significance for the poet – Burnt Norton, East Coker, the Dry Salvages and Little Gidding. Over seventy years after the poems were published, those places, whose remembered landscapes and seascapes are so vividly evoked in his verse, remain largely as Eliot would have found them. In as privately published volume, Nigel Ready has sought, through photographs linked to the text of each poem, to record as faithfully as possible the genus loci which Eliot experienced.


Hitherto, the volume has only been made available to family and friends, but others wishing to acquire a copy should contact Nigel at
