Lecture 11 - T.S. Eliot (cont.)
Professor Hammer's discussion of "The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock" continues with particular attention paid to the poem's psychological, social, and generic elements. Eliot's place in literary criticism and his modernist poetics are considered in the essay "The Metaphysical Poets." The essay's critique of Romanticism serves as a bridge to Eliot's masterwork, The Waste Land, the first lines of which are presented and analyzed.
