Ok, here is the thing: I LOVE PRUFROCK:)
Oh God! I loooooove this book. I read "The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock" maybe a million times! It's my favorite poem.
This particular poem takes you in a journey to a world where people are asleep - just like the world we're living in today! A world so ugly, like a "“sawdust restaurants with oyster-shells:”
Prufrock is so sick of that world, he wants to shout, scream, and tell people that they are sinking, and that their lives are going in the wrong direction. But! .... But he's so hesitant! He doesn't dare! He keeps saying:
“Do I dare
Disturb the universe?”
He doesn't dare, not because he's a coward, but because he knows nobody would ever listen to him! His words would be in vain! Because he believes that people are drowning and there is no way for him to help any of them. So, he prefers to remain silent.
Prufrock says: "“We have lingered in the chambers of the sea
By sea-girls wreathed with seaweed red and brown
Till human voices wake us, and we drown.”
This book is just great. I highly recommend it.Check out my full review here:
