...Alfred Prufrock’ ‘The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock’ starts with the image of time, much in comparison and contrast with the carpe diem theme of Andrew Marvell that T.S Eliot draws upon consistently in the latter parts of the poem as well. There exist a number of auditory, visual and tactile images in the poem, ranging from colors, animate and inanimate objects and sensory experiences of human togetherness. It can be observed that the images that recur in the poem, even as they refer to the objects related to real-life existence, are rather abstract. And the images are more akin to the metaphysical aspects of life than merely metaphorical ones... The Use of Images in T. S Eliot’s ‘The Love Song of J....

Eliot”, 2006). If you asked Eliot, he would say that the objective correlative... is essentially a...

It is an analysis of the tortured soul of the prototypical contemporary man - overeducated, neurotic, eloquent, and emotionally stilted. The author, the poem’s speaker, appears to be addressing a particular potential lover, with whom he wishes “forcing the moment to its crisis” (CP 2) by somehow achieving their relationship. Prufrocks paralysis follows certainly from this subjectivism of everything. If each perception is an opaque domain, then the author has no expectation of being understood by the readers.
