The paper analyzes the development of Prufrock's persona in T.S. Eliot's "The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock". The paper discusses the irony of Prufrock's tone and Prufrock as a divided self.

From the Paper:

"The voice or persona in T. S. Eliot's "The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock" declines stanza by stanza from a self-conscious and alienated taker of tea in drawing rooms to an aging, disillusioned wader at the shoreline where muse-mermaids rebuff him. The key to interpreting Eliot's Prufrock is irony. Irony colors Prufrock's tone, his attitude toward the world throughout the monologue. His mock-heroic approach to tea-time society and sexuality and his casual juxtapositions of the humdrum with heroic allusions, reveal his trembling self-consciousness."
