Read full description of the books:

Eliot is a master of prose and poetry. In this play, he writes in blank verse the story of a detective, and his journey from guilt to redemption. Near the beginning, Harry says to Charles,
You are all people
You whom nothing has happened, at most a continual impact
Of external events. You have gone through life in sleep,
Never woken to the nightmare. I tell you, life would be unendurable
If you were wide awake. You do not know
The noxious smell untraceable in the drains,
Inaccessible to the plumbers, that has its hour of the night; you do not know
The unspoken voice of sorrow in the ancient bedroom
At three o’clock in the morning. I am not speaking
Of my own experience, but trying to give you
Comparisons in a more familiar medium. I am the old house
With the noxious smell and the sorrow before morning,
In which all past is present, all degradation
Is unredeemable. As for what happens—
Of the past you can only see what is past,
Not what is always present. That is what matters.”

Other family members detach themselves from the unfolding action, and the play takes on elements of the Oresteia. The Chorus at the end says, “We understand the ordinary business of living, / We know how to work the machine,”
Eventually, his guilt allows him to see his redemption.
