The Cocktail Party

by TS Eliot

A Drawing Room Comedy

"The Cocktail Party" begins and ends at a party in the drawing room of Edward and Lavinia, whose marriage is breaking up. Who, in modern times, could counsel them but a psychiatrist? Reilly, however, is more than a psychiatrist, just as Julia and Alex, social gadflies and friends of the troubled couple, are more than they seem. With devastating truth and fascinating insights, delivered with the lightest and most eloquent of touches, it is revealed that Edward is a man incapable of loving, and Lavinia a woman incapable of being loved. The psychiatrist informs them of this, and announces, "you begin to see, I hope, How much you have in common. . . . The best of a bad job is all any of us make of it."
