T.S. Eliot’s The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock argues the necessity for men to embody a sense of traditional masculinity. He argues that if stereotypical manliness is not practiced by a man, he will figuratively “drown” (Eliot, 137) and be “almost ridiculous-/ [a]lmost, at times, [a f]ool.” (124-125) Eliot portrays this by following the speaker, Prufrock, during a night out and witnessing his incapability to achieve his goal as a result of not acting as a stereotypical male. Through repetition
S. Eliot had created the poem, The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock, to reflect the sickness of the society and the weakness of the humanity . In this poem, he describes an internal conflict of the narrator in the poem who eventually wavered his offer of marriage in determination. While in the poem, Something Whispered in the Shakuhachi, created by Garrett Hongo, the narrator told the secret of making a flute to convey
whatever their personal meaning of life is; Eliot found cultural diversity and truth to be of great importance. Eliot taught an important lesson that virtually anything can be accomplished and overcome with the right beliefs, perseverance, and determination to succeed.

The poetic creative process is certainly a daunting task; one that takes the author through a world that distracts, terrifies, angers, and eventually elates the artist. It is difficult, attempting to create “a house that attempts to be haunted” in the span of a few, or even many lines of poetry. How can a poet possibly include ghosts that will haunt the reader in every single one of their poems? That seems to be the first test of success or failure as an artist. That is not to say that if every work
The Connection of Mortality with One’s Love of Life in T.S. Eliot's The Wasteland and Yulisa Amadu Maddy's No Past No Present No Future Through many writers’ works the correlation of mortality and love of life is strongly enforced. This connection is one that is easy to illustrate and easy to grasp because it is experienced by humans daily. For instance, when a loved one passes away, even though there is time for mourning, there is also an immediate appreciation for one’s life merely because
The Wasteland, based on the texts I have read, is a varied and diverse environment of barrenness and death. In my life, and in society today, the Wasteland is not much different; the barrenness is one of mind and soul, and we have the same lack of knowledge about death now that these authors did when recording their thoughts on paper.
