Eliot

Poetry Selections -- Jerz: Intro to Literary Study (EL150)

This poem, I am guessing by the title, is supposed to be a poem of love. This outlook the author perceived was a confused emotion of love. What do I say, what do i do, can i take back what i said, should i change? To me, this poem was a therapy to the author to let his confused emotions out.
"I am no prophet-and here's no great matter"
The character in this story feels as if he is nothing special, but this one lady(or whomever the author intended the other character to be)is the characters prize possesion. To him she is every thing.
He doesnt know how to let out his true feelings.
"It is impossible to say just what I mean!"
He has seen all that there is to see, there is nothing left to amuse him or entertain him. However, this lady is what he needs, but doesnt know how to make him hers.

I feel that this was a great poem. It let out a lot of stress and emotion and revealed a lot about the character. I think the depiction of the character and his thoughts were excellent.

How did the rest of the class interpret this poem?
