THE POEMS OF T. S. ELIOT READ BY JEREMY IRONS
Originally broadcast on BBC Radio 4, Jeremy Irons’ perceptive reading illuminates the poetry of T. S. Eliot in all its complexity. Major poems range from ‘The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock’, through the post-war desolation of The Waste Land and the spiritual struggle of ‘Ash-Wednesday’, to the enduring charm of Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats. The Spectator praised Jeremy Irons’ interpretation as ‘so accessible, reading Eliot as if finding his words for the first time, grappling with them, relishing them, using them to express feelings that we all share as we struggle to accept, to recognise or relinquish’. Dame Eileen Atkins also features alongside Jeremy Irons in the reading of The Waste Land.
