“The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock” Comic at the Ellis Library (University of Missouri)

Much to my delight, several pages from my comics adaptation of T. S. Eliot’s “The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock” are included in an exhibit currently being held at the Ellis Library of the University of Missouri. The exhibit commemorates the centenary of the poem’s first publication in the June 1915 issue of Poetry: A Magazine of Verse. It was organized by University of Missouri professor and Vice President of the T. S. Eliot Society Frances Dickey, with the assistance of the students in her Modern Literature class. I wish I could make it down to Eliot’s native Missouri to see it! IMG269-2

    That’s lovely. Have conducted a couple of discussions in class around your choices of the visual moment, or your framing of the object as seen/shown. Eagerly waiting to see how you tackle the No I am not Prince Hamlet section, as well as the final pairing of ‘wake’ and ‘drown’. Do tell when you’re done! You’ve given much joy.
