THIS STUDY GROUP HAS BEEN CANCELED
Late in life, these two poets produced philosophical masterpieces of lament and elegy - Rilke’s Duino Elegies and Eliot’s Four Quartets. These were Eliot’s final poems, while Rilke went on to write the more joyous Sonnets to Orpheus. We will approach these poems through background writings and critical studies, and read them aloud line- by- line, discussing them as we proceed; speaking, hearing and sharing poetry with others greatly enhances understanding and enjoyment. Our text is 
The Selected Poetry of Rainer Maria Rilke, edited and translated by Stephen Mitchell, with an introduction by Robert Hass (Vintage, 1989). T.S. Eliot’s poems are readily available online.
