This volume presents a reading of poems directly related to the poet's quest for God. A certain measure of literary discussion is necessary in the exploration of poems so erudite and often so obscure to many readers, but this book illuminates those aspects which reveal his importance as a religious writer, the journey of the man in search of God. Eliot's poetry shows that out of the isolation, confusion and complexity of that journey can come a realization of community, simplicity and calm.
