Seminar paper from the year 2004 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Literature, grade: 2, University of Dusseldorf "Heinrich Heine," course: T. S. Eliot, 9 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: 1935 is the year of Eliot's writing "Murder in the Cathedral," the first religious verse drama in his career as dramatist. Writing his own critical essay on "Murder in the Cathedral," Eliot focuses on a lot of topics and difficulties, writing a first drama in verse. One of the topics Eliot refers to in his essay "Poetry and Drama" is his reflection on the Women Chorus in "Murder in the Cathedral" and their dramatic function during the play. Reflecting on this topic and giving an answer to the question, if there are other functions, which can be attributed to the Chorus, will be my job in this paper. But before dealing with the actual topic, I will use this introduction, which I consider the first unit of my paper, in order to give you an overview of the units and topics of the paper.
