T.S. Eliot-Related Humor
The remnants of Hurricane Ida are lashing the East Coast, where I live. The skies have been dark, and the rain pelting, for about 48 hours. And given the recent solemnity of Veterans Day, and all the frightening and depressing developments in the news, I would like to share a little welcome highbrow humor.
Follow this link to the hilarious parody of T.S. Eliot by British writer Henry Reed. Be sure to listen to Dylan Thomas’s recitation of the parody (see the bottom of the page). Thomas sounds exactly like Eliot reading “The Four Quartets.”
