Sweeney’s Agony

Saturday, June 10th, 2017

A fair use illustration of using a poem fragment from Sweeny Agonistes as song lyrics. What is unusual about this piece by Eliot is that it was intended to have musical rhythms in the meter, though conceived in a jazz context. Here is an illustration in a blues context. Source is Collected Poems 1909 – 1935 Copyright T. S. Eliot.
