Initiates a scholarly discussion of the textuality of mystical experience, altered states of consciousness, textual encounters with the soul, and psychic or paranormal writing. The work of T. S. Eliot () furnishes a particularly good starting place, because he was, for a layman, unusually well acquainted with anthropological goings-on and he put much of his knowledge to use in poems, plays, and works of literary and social criticism.

    The title of my talk today may strike some of you as curious, if not confused. One recognizes the name of the Nobel-prize-winning Anglo-American poet and critic, T.S. Eliot; one may recall also that, late in his career, he published a small book entitled Notes Toward the Definition of Culture ().

T.S. Eliot drew his inspiration not only from the literature of orthodox Christian mysticism and from a variety of Hindu and Buddhist sources, but also from the literature of the occult, and from several unexpected and so far unacknowledged sources such as the 'mystical' symbolism of Shakespeare's later plays and the visionary poetry of Rudyard.

Mysticism is the leap from ordinary intellectualism and apprehension by the senses of the substantial world to the perceptive and intuitive grasp of the intangible depth of Being, particularly aided by God's grace which is pure gift.

T.S. Eliot was as aware of prayer as he was of the religious traditions that emphasized mysticism and chose carefully to integrate them both into his poetry, not only Format: Paperback.

INTRODUCTION. (pp. ) T. Eliot is the first poet since Coleridge to have constructed a comprehensive philosophical system out of eclectic sources and then to have allowed those ideas to determine the nature of his verse and his principles of literary criticism, and to influence even the conduct of his personal life.

A Mystical Philosophy contributes to the contemporary resurgence of interest in Spirituality, but from an entirely new direction.

This book provides a warning against reductive scientific and philosophical models that impoverish our understanding of ourselves and the world, and a powerful endorsement of ways of knowing that give art, and a restored concept of contemplation, their consummative place.

Find books. MYSTICISM IN 'S "FOUR QUARTETS" - A STUDY KUMARI Mysticism can be broadly defined as something mysterious, that which seems to be obscure for human comprehension. This is something indefinable, something always and everywhere meets us, reminding us of the existence of that which is beyond all.

He reconstructed the poetry; there is mixture of thought, feeling and vision. Of course Prichard’s philosophy may have very much developed since I knew him. But my belief is that his own aesthetics, based as they are on experiences of a very remarkable sensibility, have an independent value, and that Bergson provided him much more with a valuable emotional stimulant than with an intellectual structure.

Basic lack of information concerning mysticism is perhaps one of the main reasons why Eliot’s mystical attitude, or his philosophy of mysticism, has not always been regarded by critics as fundamental to the inner composition of Four Quartets. The tendency in general is to imagine that a work of mystical literature — if it is really authentic — will be characterised by an intense erotic-devotional by: 1.

Eliot's concern with the philosophy of time is evidenced from his earliest poetry. It is part of the development of his whole philosophy of life: his engagement with reality, his concept of consciousness, the function of history and myth in his life, and his concept of "something beyond", a harmony for which he is striving.

The Four Quartets are perhaps the most mystical and religious of Eliot's poems. Each one is a meditation on time, mixing Christian and Hindu imagery with personal and historical events.

"In The Waste Land the waste was place, the 'Unreal City,'" writes Eliot's biographer, Lyndall Gordon; "here, the waste is time--time unredeemed by a sense of the timeless.". So, apparently, was T.S. Eliot. During his Harvard days, he made a self-directed study of the lives of saints and mystics, and became well acquainted with Evelyn Underhill’s book Mysticism: A Study of the Nature and Development of Man’s Spiritual Consciousness, and with William Ralph Inge’s book Studies of the English Mystics.
