    The Four Quartets side by side

    The poems that comprise T.S. Eliot's The Four Quartets ("Burnt
    Norton," "East Coker," "Dry Salvages," and "Little Gidding") have much
    in common. One way of reading them is to compare the corresponding
    parts of each. To do so the old fashioned way required flipping a
    number of pages or spreading copies of the poems across a table
    top. The new method involves placing each of the poems in their own
    seperate frame of a web brower and allowing the reader to scroll
    through them as needed.

Some information about the Yeats Eliot Review (valid as of March 1999)
provided by Russell Elliott Murphy, the editor:

    The YER subscription rate for individuals in the U.S. and Canada is
    $24.00 per volume year (a matter I always stress, as opposed, that is,
    to the calendar year; a volume is four distinct issues [unless, that
    is, one is specifically designated a "double issue"]). International
    rates for individuals are $32 per year surface mail, $40 per year by
    air. Any new subscriber should specify which issue the subscription
    should begin with (e.g., YER 16.1) rather than a year or month,
    etc. All subscriptions should be sent to
        Yeats Eliot Review
        P.O. Box 4474
        Little Rock, AR 72214
    and checks in U.S. dollars should be made payable to the Yeats Eliot
    Review.
