For our senior play in high school, we did "Our Town" interspersed with quotes from Eliot recited by a chorus. We ended with the "this is the way the world ends" passage and it was stunning. A nice convergence of authors' sensibilities there. Diana

Experimnts are always welcome (by me anyway).
Could you give us a fuller idea of what you're talking about.
I know of perfromances of TWL in which individuals speak]the lines randomly without preplanning. It is VERY eerie.

Subject: non-linear readings of Eliot's early poems

Hello everybody,
I have just come up with an idea of reading Eliot's 'Preludes' in a nonlinear fashion, i.e. to try and receive it in a way one receives polyphonic works of Johan Sebastian. However, being a rather humble student, I expect that there must have been some wise people who have already paved this way...

Please, can anyone help me with a reference to such readings of  Eliot's early poems (Preludes, The Love Song of J.A., and Gerontion)?

With best wishes,
