Before Honor's Day, please complete the following:
1) Turn in any missing work that has been assigned since your return from Spring Break (2nd week of April).
2) Read "The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock."This is not an easy poem; many, many books and articles are dedicated to exploring T.S. Eliot's writings, and still today some scholars disagree about interpretations. If you're having trouble, take a look at this site (but be warned, it's crowd-sourced, like Wikipedia, so take everything with a grain of salt).
4) Create a 2-3 paragraph Psychoanalytic Literary Criticism response to the poem. Prufrock is a character ripe for this type of analysis. What is his deal? Why is everything such a challenge for him? What conflicting emotions/desires/neuroses are present? These are just a few directions you could go with while writing a psychoanalytic criticism of the piece.
