Poetry Landmarks

East Coker


(Associated Place)


East Coker, the subject of one of Eliot's "Four Quartets", is the birthplace of his ancestors. His heart is buried at the Parish Church. The village is remarkably unchanged: much as described in the poem, and very beautiful. It has a flourishing local history society which traces old East Coker families.
