First published in 1917, this collection of twelve poems by T.S. Eliot is a delightful read for all poetry lovers. The Love Song of J Alfred Prufrock sees the hero pondering over the worth of pursuing the object of his affections. It is full of ordinary scenes viewed in extraordinary ways.
This little collection is well worth owning.

If you must be a fan of this pretentious and shallow poet, you'd get far better value by buying his collected poems. Eliot was of course a master at making very little sound quite big and important, but with eight skinny poems and the longer ambitious poems of an experimenting adolescent here, even this famous word conjuror cannot make this thin book look like value for money.
