Jonathan Lee One thing that really confuses me is the repetition of “Talking of Michelangelo”. It obviously has importance if it was repeated but it just doesn’t seem to make any sense with context to the rest of the poem. I think it has to be some sort of a reference, I just don’t know to what. That seems to happen a bunch of times and it causes me to lose focus from the main stream of the poem. Another example would be in line 73, “Of lonely men in shirt sleeves, leaning out of windows?” I’m not sure if I should try to interpret that directly or if it’s another reference to something else, maybe another piece of work or someone in T. S. Eliot’s life. Something else that bothered me was parts of the poem where it could have been interpreted as the speaker is being judged at by society or some people. In line 57 it says “When I am pinned and wriggling on the wall”. Some of the other kids in class saw this as other people judging him. The end of the poem
