Abstract

Modern poetry is marked with the spirit of revolt against humanism and romanticism. The note of pessimism is always discernible in modern poetry that expresses a feeling of frustration among the people. T S Eliot is a modern poet not merely because of the novelty of his themes and by awareness of his time but chiefly because of the new method evolved by him for poetic communication. His poem “Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock” is an excellent example of modern poetry that deals with the complexities and dilemma of modern man. The present paper attempts to deal with the description of love of J Alfred Prufrock and his problems while expressing his feelings to his lady love. The paper tries to make an in-depth study of the situation faced by the protagonist who is in quest of a successful love relationship.
