  2. A fabulous verse drama about the martyrdom of Thomas Becket Most of the action is in Thomas s head, as he rejects the easy solutions presented by his Tempters, and decides to stick to the course which inevitably leads to his death My favorite lines are the following The last temptation is the greatest treasonTo do the right deed for the wrong reason It sounds convincing, but I ve never been able to decide if I agree Given how uncertain people generally are about their motives, isn t what you A fabulous verse drama about the martyrdom of Thomas Becket Most of the action is in Thomas s head, as he rejects the easy solutions presented by his Tempters, and decides to stick to the course which inevitably leads to his death My favorite lines are the following The last temptation is the greatest treasonTo do the right deed for the wrong reason It sounds convincing, but I ve never been able to decide if I agree Given how uncertain people generally are about their motives, isn t what you do the most important thing For example, when you read about the background to many great works of art, you ll often find that they were composed for the most trivial and ridiculous of reasons impressing some random woman that the author was keen on, settling scores with a rival, winning a bet, or, most often, just pa...

  4. It took me almost a month to get through this small play because I had to keep going back and re read certain parts As I was reading the play I kept comparing Eliot to Shakespeare Maybe that was wrong and one of the reasons why it took me so long to read because they are both writers of a different caliber, but for me, Shakespeare s writing flows with delicacy and beauty, while Eliot s writing is stiff and dare I say, dull He certainly didn t grab my attention the way Skakespeare does That b It took me almost a month to get through this small play because I had to keep going back and re read certain parts As I was reading the play I kept comparing Eliot to Shakespeare Maybe that was wrong and one of the reasons why it took me so long to read because they are both writers of a different caliber, but for me, Shakespeare s writing flows with delicacy and beauty, while Eliot s writing is stiff and dare I say, dull He certainly didn t grab my...

  5. Human kind cannot bear very much reality.The structure of this play is gripping The use of the chorus was very effective, whereas the depiction of a conflicted Becket in dialogue with his temptations could ve been explored further The absence of Henry II makes mattershuman and inchoate The state is thus shorn of personality The debate of ideas and sacrifice reminded me of the debate surrounding Edward Snowden Unfortunately I began to ponder and compare the fixed points of liberty and Human kind cannot bear very much reality.The structure of this play is gripping The use of the chorus was very effective, whereas the depiction of a conflicted Becket in dialogue with his temptations could ve been explored further The absence of Henry II makes mattershuman and inchoate The state is thus shorn of personality The debate of ideas and sacrifice reminded me of the...

  8. OK was as good as I could do with this one I could not imagine sitting through a performance of this It s not Shakespeare, it s not Greek, it is Eliot, though, I suppose Theater doesn t seem to fit him as well as poetry, in my opinion.Becket returns to England knowing he s a marked man Reconciliation with the king will not happen And after a temptation scene and advice from friends, he stands firm in the knowledge he will become a martyr With a few tweaks this sounds like Jesus last visit OK was as good as I could do with this one I could not imagine sitting through a performance of this It s not Shakespeare, it s not Greek, it is Eliot, though, I suppose Theater doesn t seem to fit him as well as poetry, in my opinion.Becket returns to England knowing he s a marked man Reconciliation with the king will not happen And after a temptation scene and advice from friends, he stands firm in the knowledge he will become a martyr With a few tweaks this sounds like Jesus last visit to...
