Jeremy Irons Reads T.S. Eliot’s “Four Quartets”

Apr 12, 2018

We shall not cease from exploration / And the end of all our exploring / Will be to arrive where we started / And know the place for the first time.

In April 2018, seventy-five years after the original publication of “Four Quartets”—and nearly seventy years since T.S. Eliot himself read from the poem in his Poetry Center debut—Academy Award-winning actor Jeremy Irons presented the masterwork in its entirety on the 92Y stage. 92Y now releases never-before-seen footage of the reading for a limited time only.

This special event coincided with the awarding of the inaugural Four Quartets Prize, presented by the T.S. Eliot Foundation in association with the Poetry Society of America, as well as the CD release of Irons reading all of Eliot’s poems.
