Abstract Alfred Prufrock's poetry incorporates modernist elements such as objective correlative, fragmentation, free verse, and irregular rhyme. It marks a marked split from romantic English poets such as Coleridge and Wordsworth. Eliot wants to explain the essence of life, and the content represents current day-to-day living rather than an escape from reality's grind.
"The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock" T.S. maintains Eliot's hold over today's man. The poem's narrator, c. Alfred Prufrock, represents Eliot's vision of modern man. Eliot explains his motivation for writing on this issue as follows: "Poetry may also help to destroy the traditional patterns of appreciation and evaluation that are constantly formed, and make people see the world anew, or a new phase of it." It can also remind us of the value of poetry on occasion. Deeper, unnamed sentiments that constitute the foundation of our existence are rarely explored since our entire life is a regular flight from ourselves, an escape from the visible and good world. The poem focuses on a difficulty caused by modern metropolitan culture.
The objective of this thesis is to demonstrate how Eliot's The Love Song of J Alfred Prufrock portrays the modern man.
