T S ELIOT AT LITTLE GIDDING
An inspirational day of talks, readings, and discussions near the pig-sty, the dull façade, and the tombstone—all made famous by Eliot’s great poem.
Seamus Perry, Oxford Professor of English Literature, will speak on “Auden, Eliot, and the voices of Christianity.”
Poet George Szirtes, winner of the 2005 T.S. Eliot Prize, will read and discuss a selection of Eliot’s poems, and take questions from the audience.
The Reverend Richard Coles, in conversation with biographer Adam Begley, will discuss religion in Eliot’s poetry with specific reference to “Little Gidding.”
The programme concludes with George Blagden reading “Little Gidding.” A graduate of Oundle School, Blagden plays Louis XIV in the television series Versailles and is currently appearing in Molière’s Tartuffe at the Theatre Royal Haymarket in London.
The Festival takes place in the garden of Ferrar House at Little Gidding. In addition to the programme of Eliot-related events, morning coffee, a two-course buffet lunch, and afternoon tea will be served.
