Title: The Four Stress Line as a Unit of Construction in Burnt Norton
Authors: Halsted, Douglas
Issue Date: 15 Jan 2014
Publisher: University of Hawaii at Manoa
Abstract: The purposes of this paper is to examine Eliot's use of the four stress line within the first poem of the Four Quartets. The four stress line is a basic rhytmic unit in all four of the Quartets. But it is only in "Burnt Norton" that Eliot relies almost completely upon the four stress line throughout the poem. I believe that a close analysis of Eliot's use of the four stress line is helpful in understanding "Burnt Norton" for itself and as the beginning of the Four Quartets.
