Brief description of the book Murder in the Cathedral:-

T. S. Eliot's verse dramatization of the murder of Thomas Becket at Canterbury, winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature
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.

CHORUS Here let us stand, close by the cathedral. Here let us wait. Are we drawn by danger? Is it the knowledge of safety, that draws our feet Towards the cathedral? What danger can be For us, the poor, the poor women of Canterbury? what tribulation With which we are not already familiar? There is no danger For us, and there is no safety in the cathedral. Some presage of an act Which our eyes are compelled to witness has forced our feet Towards the cathedral. We are forced to bear witness. Since golden October declined into sombre November, the apples were gathered and stored, and the land became brown sharp points of death in a waste of water and mud, The New Year waits, breaths, waits, and whispers in the darkness. While the labourer kicks off a muddy boot and stretches his hand to the fire.
