Abasolo 1 Emmanuel Abasolo Professor Sullivan/Farren English 102 February 27, 2008 “The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock” T.S. Eliot’s poem, “The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock” is about the internal monologue running through the mind of a middle aged man, J. Alfred Prufrock, while trying to decide when to propose to a woman. Among his thoughts are his fears that he has perhaps waited too long, and that no one really loves him. His insecurities eventually lead him to his downfall. Many people have the illusion of the storybook proposal. A man and woman go to dinner, drink champagne and listen to a beautiful music, then music stops the man drops to one knee and takes out the ring, they get married and have a perfect life. But, that is usually never the case. While seeking the right moment to pop the question, the narrator constantly asks himself, “Do I dare?” The phrase is used as repetition, and is meant to be stressed to us. It illustrates to us Prufrock’s constant indecision, lack of courage and spontaneity.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
