About the Lecture

Join Dr. Pedro Blas Gonzalez as he explores T.S. Eliot’s argument that “all time is unredeemable.” According to Eliot, time past and present are already contained in time future; therefore, time cannot be treated in abstraction but as the vital ground of human reality. In Four Quartets, Eliot is concerned with time as “lived experience.”
