"The Love Song of Alfred Prufrock" recounts the life story of a middle-aged man who is afraid to commit himself to a relationship. This paper analyzes the poem and examines what makes it so popular among younger readers of poetry.

From the Paper:

"The Love Song is the poem of a man who laments a lifetime of grief and fear due to his past failures. He tries to place his doubts into the context of his meaningless life to understand the impact of his isolation and try to compensate for his loneliness. Eliot uses rich imagination and superb poetic words, to create Prufrock's explanation of his memories, experiences and his feelings that are written in ways to make poem true to life."
