About This Item

London: Faber and Faber Ltd, 1952. Hardcover. Very Good. pp 88 A very good fourth edition, reprinted October 1957, of Murder in the Cathedral. Annotated throughout in pencil with stage directions. Laid in; two programmes and a flyer for productions of Murder in the Cathedral. The first souvenir programme and illustrated flyer are for a production by E Martin Browne CBE which took place in July 1955 in the magnificent setting of Gloucester Cathedral, in aid of the Fabric Appeal Fund. The second, smaller, undated programme is for a production at Penzance County Grammar School for Boys, with C Kempthorne in the leading role. The book is in very good condition; the plum coloured boards are sunned to spine; the text is browned to extremities with occasional marks and stains. Very Good 1952


T. S. Eliot's verse dramatization of the murder of Thomas Becket at Canterbury, winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature   The Archbishop Thomas Becket speaks fatal words before he is martyred in T. S. Eliot's best-known drama, based on the murder of the Archbishop of Canterbury in 1170. Praised for its poetically masterful handling of issues of faith, politics, and the common good, T. S. Eliot's play bolstered his reputation as the most significant poet of his time.
