Eliot's Views of Sexuality as revealed in the behavior of Prufrock and Sweeney. The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock tells the story of a single character, a timid, middle-aged man. Prufrock is talking or thinking to himself. The epigraph, a dramatic speech taken from Dante's Inferno, provides a key to Prufrock's nature. Like Dante's character Prufrock is in hell, in this case a hell of his own feelings. He is both the you and I of line one, pacing the city's grimy streets on his lonely

SURREALISM AND TS ELIOT
SURREALISM AND T.S. ELIOT Surrealism is a dangerous word to use about the poet, playwright and critic T.S. Eliot, and certainly with his first major work, The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock .

Andre Breton published his first Manifesto of Surrealism in 1924, seven years after Eliot's publication of The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock. It was this manifesto whic

Life is occupied by waiting In Waiting for Godot Samuel Becket present
Life is occupied by waiting. In Waiting for Godot, Samuel Becket presents the suffering of the human condition. Godot is about two beings who talk about nothing, experience the drudgery of life, complain that they do not do anything, meet a few people, think about hanging themselves, and then do it all over again. The existentialist style by Godot is comparable to T.S. Eliot’s works. Eliot’s Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock, and Hollow Men are about the tormenting cycle of life and death. The co

Marvell's Use of Sound in To His Coy Mistress
Marvell's Use of Sound in To His Coy Mistress At first glance, Andrew Marvel's poem To His Coy Mistress is a fairly typical carpe diem poem, in which the speaker tells his beloved that they should seize the day and have sex now instead of waiting until they are married.
