Eliot as a poet and critic has drawn much attention, and his works have been researched and studied extensively. Of his works, Four Quartets has been dealt with from the perspective of time and timelessness, along with the musical effect of the versification with beautiful rhymes and rhythms. This poem is also characterized by a sense of historicity. Focusing on some of Proust`s themes, this study attempts to define Eliot`s time. Eliot tries to present his own abstract and metaphysical time realistically and concretely by using Proust`s themes, such as memory, recollection, and objects. Proust`s literary themes Eliot uses in his own poem make it read like a novel: Eliot uses a continuity or a memory or a recollection, as in Proust`s novel. Both Eliot and Proust deviate from the definition of the time we use. That is, their time is different from the arrangement of time physics or natural science defines; to them, time moves up and down, flows on without a definite point, crosses over past, present, and future.
