Analysis of "The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock" - In "The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock" by T.S. Elliot the speaker Alfred is a very isolated and indecisive man. Through out his monologue he speaks of himself and the way the world is through his eyes. He embodies a man that is too intelligent to realize he is the one holding him back. My view of Alfred is that he is an older man in his late fifties that has led a very passionless life. He lives in a city were there is yellow fog and smoke against the window-panes, a number of one-night cheap hotels and sawdust restaurants....   [tags: Poetry] 603 words

However T.S. Eliot’s “The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock” is almost a guide on how to dissuade oneself from professing love to a woman. It does this by combining several different poetic methods to display a situation of desperation and trapped isolation.
