Eliot’s “The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock.” He revealed the first nine pages on his site recently.
“Prufrock” begins with an epigraph from Dante's Inferno and the comic translates Eliot's quotes from Greek and other languages.
From Dante's poor tortured soul trapped in the eight circle, we move through Prufrock's own little emotional circle.
