The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock.. an insecure man

T.S. Eliot presents Prufrock as a unique individual in The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock. The poem is a collection of the thoughts, feelings, and interactions of a man’s experience with love. Love, like all emotions are unique to the individual. Prufrock is an individual separated from love by his insecurities and not a model of life.

Prufrock’s insecurities far exceed common doubt. Repetitively he questions himself “Do I Dare?”. Uncertainty conflicts people at times, but Prufrock’s struggle is elaborate. Later, he imagines himself merely an insect for display, “pinned and wriggling on the wall”. The insecurities of Prufrock distinguish him.

In conclusion, T. S. Eliot’s The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock portrays Prufrock as a unique individual. Prufrock’s insecurities are distinguishing and separate him from love. Love is confusing and different to all people. Prufrock is singularly conflicted in The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock, and does not represent modern life.
