Tansha Farjana Hasnat141-128-003Pankaj BhattacharjeeSenior LecturerEng 61113 Apr 2014Modernism in Eliot's PoetryAccording to English novelist Virginia Woolf human nature underwent a fundamental change on or about early twentieth century. And the term modernism refers to the same fundamental shift in art, coulter, literature, style of living, etc. of before and after World War One period. This change may be characterized by a self-conscious break in writing traditional poetry. Modern writer's conscious desire was to overturn the traditional style and to represent the sensibilities of that period. This consciousness reflects in each and every line of Eliot's poetry as well as his contemporaries. Eliot depicts Prufrock in the poem "The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock" as a confused person who is not very much certain about the answer of his female friend. She should say, "That is not what I meant at all. / That is not at all."

(49-54)This is also noticeable that World War One has empowered the women of that time; men left them behind- alone, helpless; and they need to survive in this hard world. The war made them independent to live and think women were talking about those things, going places that were unreachable or almost forbidden for them. For example, they were in and out talking about "Michelangelo"(14) an artist: women were showing interest in art and other things. They broke the shackle around them and break into men's society and interfering in social affairs. We can talk about Virginia Woolf how she lived alone in a city like London after her father's death and till the time she got married. So, women of the modern period got the freedom and this grew insecurity in men. And man like Prufrock wasted their timeThere are also other references of modernization in Eliot's poetry. Industrialization was introduced in that period and this phenomenon has changed the way of living entirely. Because of these industries...
