Throughout the world, many consider T.S. Eliot to be the ; most important and influential poet of the 20th century, ; and Four Quartets to be his finest poem and greatest ; literary achievement. Dove Descending is a journey ; into the beauties and depths of Eliot's masterpiece written ; by Thomas Howard, bestselling author, professor and critic. ;

In this line-by-line commentary, Howard unravels the ; complexities of the sublime poem with such adept adroitness ; that even its most difficult passages spring to life. ; During his many years as a professor of English and ; Literature, Howard taught this poem often, and developed ; what he calls "a reading" approach to its concepts that ; render their meaning more lucid for the reader. Dove ; Descending reunites the brilliant insights of a master ; teacher whose understanding and love of Eliot's writings ; are shared here for the great benefit of the ; reader.

Dove Descending is:

  • The ; first in-depth exposition of Eliot's masterwork ever ; published
  • The fruit of Howard's many years of teaching ; Eliot and his unique understanding of the complexities of ; the great poem
  • A must-have book for fans of T. S Eliot, ; and anyone who wants to understand his greatest ; work.

"In my own view, this sequence of four ; poems represents the pinnacle of Eliot's whole work. ; Four Quartets stands as Eliot's valedictory to the ; modern world. I would place it, along with Chartres ; Cathedral, the Divine Comedy, van Eyck's "Adoration of the ; Mystic Lamb" and Mozart's Requiem as a major edifice ; in the history of the Christian West."

"T.S. Eliot's greatest poem deserves the finest exposition. Few critics alive today are equal to the task. Thomas Howard is one of those gifted few. Lovers of Eliot will delight in Howard's understanding of the mysterious descending of the dove."
—Joseph Pearce, Author, Literary Converts
