Author's Notes: I wrote "Prufrock's Symbolic World" as a Double Dactyl poem. The backdrop for this Double Dactyl write is one of T. S. Eliot's most famous poems, "The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock," which was originally published in 1915, and was viewed at that time as being quite iconoclastic (and it still is), and was seen as one of several very important poems that helped in developing the paradigm shift from "Romanticism" to "Modernism." My emphasis in this brief Double Dactyl touches on some noted areas of Eliot's symbolism. Anyone who is familiar with this most wonderful poem should be able to identify with what I've written in constructing my Double Dactyl interpretation.
