“Reading Prufrock at Advent                ”

English

Yesterday, for perhaps the 100th time in my long career as a college professor, I taught once again T.S. Eliot’s astonishing poem “The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock,” which was published in 1915 in Harriet Monroe’s Poetry magazine.Over a century later, the poem still remains one of my favorite works in English literature.
