Over de Auteur

T. S. Eliot is considered by many to be a literary genius and one of the most influential men of letters during the half-century after World War I. He was born on September 26, 1888, in St. Louis, Missouri. Eliot attended Harvard University, with time abroad pursuing graduate studies at the toon meer Sorbonne, Marburg, and Oxford. The outbreak of World War I prevented his return to the United States, and, persuaded by Ezra Pound to remain in England, he decided to settle there permanently. He published his influential early criticism, much of it written as occasional pieces for literary periodicals. He developed such doctrines as the "dissociation of sensibility" and the "objective correlative" and elaborated his views on wit and on the relation of tradition to the individual talent. Eliot by this time had left his early, derivative verse far behind and had begun to publish avant-garde poetry (including "The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock" (1915), which exploited fresh rhythms, abrupt juxtapositions, contemporary subject matter, and witty allusion. This period of creativity also resulted in another collection of verse (including "Gerontian") and culminated in The Waste Land, a masterpiece published in 1922 and produced partly during a period of psychological breakdown while married to his wife, Vivienne Haigh-Wood Eliot. In 1922, Eliot became a director of the Faber & Faber publishing house, and in 1927 he became a British citizen and joined the Church of England. Thereafter, his career underwent a change. With the publication of Ash Wednesday in 1930, his poetry became more overtly Christian. As editor of the influential literary magazine The Criterion, he turned his hand to social as well as literary criticism, with an increasingly conservative orientation. His religious poetry culminated in Four Quartets, published individually from 1936 onward and collectively in 1943. This work is often considered to be his greatest poetic achievement. Eliot also wrote poetry in a much lighter vein, such as Old Possum's Book of Practical Cats (1939), a collection that was used during the early 1980s as the basis for the musical, Cats. In addition to his contributions in poetry and criticism, Eliot is the pivotal verse dramatist of this century. He followed the lead of William Butler Yeats in attempting to revive metrical language in the theater. But, unlike Yeats, Eliot wanted a dramatic verse that would be self-effacing, capable of expressing the most prosaic passages in a play, and an insistent, undetected presence capable of elevating itself at a moment's notice. His progression from the pageant The Rock (1934) and Murder in the Cathedral (1935), written for the Canterbury Festival, through The Family Reunion (1939) and The Cocktail Party (1949), a West End hit, was thus a matter of neutralizing obvious poetic effects and bringing prose passages into the flow of verse. Recent critics have seen Eliot as a divided figure, covertly attracted to the very elements (romanticism, personality, heresy) he overtly condemned. His early attacks on romantic poets, for example, often reveal him as a romantic against the grain. The same divisions carry over into his verse, where violence struggles against restraint, emotion against order, and imagination against ironic detachment. This Eliot is more human and more attractive to contemporary taste. During his lifetime, Eliot received many honors and awards, including the Nobel Prize for literature in 1948.

Besprekingen

Na zijn vertaling van The Waste Land (Het Barre Land, 2007) en de vroege gedichten (Gedichten 1917-1930, 2020) waagde Paul Claes zich aan zowat het moeilijkste werk van T.S. Eliot, namelijk Four Quartets. Net als bij de vorige publicaties voorzag hij dit boek van een inleiding en van een zeer uitgebreid noten-apparaat. Op die manier komen de 4 kwartetten helemaal tot hun recht, en blijven ze ook behapbaar. En gelukkig waagt Claes zich niet aan een erg particuliere interpretatie van het dichtwerk, zoals hij wel deed voor The Wasteland. Dit boek onderstreept de fenomenale inhoudelijke én vormelijke variatie van de Four Quartets.… (meer)

De vertaling van Paul Claes is, zo lijkt mij, heel goed. En zijn commentaar en uitleg is geweldig! Dus na het lezen van het gedicht en de uitvoerige uitleg erbij, nogmaals het gedicht gelezen. OK, de verwijzingen naar de Visserkoning en zo en de seksuele connotaties kon ik er nu wat beter uithalen, maar dan nog vraag ik me af wat het doel is van een gedicht waar je een heel boek aan uitleg bij nodig hebt...

Blijft een weerbarstig werk. Met de begeleidende commentaar komt de rijkdom wat beter tot zijn recht, maar het hermetisme bemoeilijkt de lectuur toch iets teveel. De persoonlijke interpretatie van Paul Claes (de impotentie van Eliot) op het einde overtuigt niet helemaal.

Geen gemakkelijke lectuur, gelukkig maakt de begeleidende commentaar veel goed. The Waste Land blijft weerbarstig, maar The Love Song of J.Alfred Prufock, Ash-Wednesday en Journey of the Magi zijn weergaloos.
