"T.S. Eliot's 'Four Quartets' stand at the pinnacle of twentieth century poetry: passionate, existentially challenging, sometimes bruising in its passion, and always a conundrum for the human heart. John Booty's 'Meditating on Four Quartets' takes the reader on a journey of discovery, a journey that begins -- and ends -- in the reality of the spiritual nature of both the poems and of the reader's mind". -- Preface, p. 9.
