thoughts of a dry brain in a dry season

T. S. Eliot

an audio of thomas stearns eliot reading his 1920 piece gerontion. the poem represents the view of a “gerontic” or elderly man and his modernist views on religion and sexuality amongst other topics. although the line “thoughts of a dry brain in a dry season” is a metaphor for age, i thought it would be rather fitting for this peculiar new york weather we’ve been having. plus, i cannot think of a more satisfying way to hear eliot read than by the genius himself. by sv
