Eliot Reflects on “Prufrock”

March 12, 2019

The 92nd Street Y has released a never-before-heard 1950 recording of T.S. Eliot reading many of his most famous poems and delivering comments on craft, the New York Times reports – even repeatedly making his audience laugh. A snippet: “Introducing ‘The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock,'” Eliot says, “I am rather embarrassed with ‘Prufrock.’ I feel it’s rather an exposing and adolescent personality.” It feels good to hear someone say it.
