One must make a distinction however: when dragged into prominence by half poets, the result is not poetry, nor till the autocrats among us can be “literalists of the imagination”—above insolence and triviality and can present for inspection, imaginary gardens with real toads in them, shall we have it.

The Tuesday Platform


Greetings to all poets, wayfarers and friends. I am loving the month of November, which is the last stretch of autumn but the beginning of new endeavors; and the time to explore new possibilities that lead through to accomplishing our goals and dreams. I came across this wonderful reading of 'The Waste Land' by T.S. Eliot on YouTube and knew that I just had to share it. It has been narrated by Alec Guinness. Hope you enjoy listening to it as much as I did. 

If you have any thoughts to share, ideas you wish to release into the wild or a world view to express, then you have come to the right place. Please share a poem of your choice and enjoy the company of your fellow scribes. We look forward to reading you and hope you have a wonderful day.

Happy Tuesday! I love Alec Guinness in anything and his voice is perfect for reading The Wasteland, in the same way as Richard Burton's voice is perfect for Under Milk Wood. Both Eliot and Thomas employed such rich imagery and language.

@Gillena; Happy Tuesday to you, too!💞

@Kim; I agree, his voice is very soothing and lends the perfect mood to reading 'The Waste Land'..💞

I hope Guinness isn't wearing his outfit from The Man in the White Suit. He might have had to rush it a bit.
