1 Warm up Create a “Bucket List” where you record 5- 5 things you want to do/see/experience before you die. Rank them in order of importance List the emotions under each that you would experience upon completing the task. How does each experience/idea make you feel?

2 Warm up take two Imagine that those opportunities have been stripped away. YOU WILL NEVER REALIZE THEM. EVER. NOW how do you feel about it? What challenges will you face trying to overcome these LOST experiences?

3 T.S. Elliot “The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock”

4 What you need to know about Eliot Thomas Stearns Eliot: The ultimate “can’t judge a book by it’s cover” icon. –OUTSIDE: model of convention (Harvard grad—clean cut) –INSIDE: revolutionary!

5 Breaking conventions Intentionally fragmented structure Focus on the despair of modern urban life Setting a tone of Modernism and for Modernism

6 What is Poetry to Eliot? A reflection of the genuine, fractured experience of life in the 20 th century—not a romanticized notion of what the world had once been Exploring the uncertainty to make meaning from a meaningless world

7 The Wasteland “A profound critique of the spiritual barrenness of the modern world”

8 Anticipate Title—Ponder the title before reading the poem: Explain your response in 1-2 sentences. –What do you think it is about? –What impression of the poet do you receive? –Do you think you will like this poem? “The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock”

9 Structure Dramatic Monologue: a poem or speech in which a character addresses a silent listener.

10 Technique Allusions: References to people, historical and literary events that hold meaning for him Rhythm and musicality: affects the mood and the reader in ways simple words cannot

11 Warm Up Take I: identify the allusions. I went out last week and met a really hot guy who considers himself to be a real Romeo. He wasn’t my type, except that he had the qualities of Midas so I decided to give him a chance. He drove like a Kamikaze, and I had almost decided that, even though he was no Hercules, my Prince Charming may have finally arrived. I was stunned by his ability to climb. He scaled the roof of my house like Spiderman. He draws well, but he is certainly no Leonardo da Vinci. He lives his life like Tom Sawyer, but he didn’t follow his high school friends who moved to California after graduation as if it were I tried to cook him dinner one night, but I’m no June Cleaver. I’m supposed to meet his best friend tomorrow, and they’ve been friends longer than Bert and Ernie. Impressing him is a giant challenge, so I plan to bring my slingshot. I hope meeting him won’t be my own Waterloo, because I think I might really like Frank!

12 Warm Up take II: Paraphrase the following… I went out last week and met a really hot guy who considers himself to be a real Romeo.

He scaled the roof of my house like Spiderman. He draws well, but he is certainly no Leonardo da Vinci. He lives his life like Tom Sawyer, but he didn’t follow his high school friends who moved to California after graduation as if it were I tried to cook him dinner one night, but I’m no June Cleaver. I’m supposed to meet his best friend tomorrow, and they’ve been friends longer than Bert and Ernie. Impressing him is a giant challenge, so I plan to bring my slingshot. I hope meeting him won’t be my own Waterloo, because I think I might really like Frank!
