    I remember being at my first anatomy dissection as a demonstrator took this slim volume out of his pocket and said to me, in a room full of cadavers, In my end is my beginning. Isn't that wonderful? TS Eliot. Do you know it? You must read it. If I'd read the scene in a novel I would have thought it contrived and overly theatrical. But I swear it act

    T.S. Eliot’s Four Quartets are as apocalyptically-sound as his more well-known The Waste Land (at least in terms of bored freshman who, in the fullness of time, will most likely only dimly remember sludging their way through the poem in some requisite English Lit courses), but whereas the latter keeps its cosmic lens rolling on the ecological, religi

    This is something that I've been reading and returning to for more than 40 years. Few works are so intimately connected with my own life changes. Truly, all poems are read afresh with each reading: as oneself changes, the poems change. In the case of Four Quartets, I used to go o it for melancholy comfort, a vague spiritual longing too balmed with its reverberatio

    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.

    Question 1 (5 points)

    Contrast the treatment of denotation and reference in the following works:

    - Marcel Proust, A L'Ombre Des Jeunes Filles En Fleurs

    Well, that's what I think's wrong with formal examinations.
