Whilst the commentary is interesting and does provide some interpretations that are worth merit, the summary is just shocking.
How anyone can read a stream-of-consciousness poem such as this and actually interpret it as "Prufrock" travelling from location to location is beyond me; secondly, the narrator (Prufrock; Eliot) is not addressing any external party, be it the reader or someone else: he is addressing HIMSELF.

Fascinating. I find especially interesting the distinction between poetry and propaganda, even propaganda in service of truth. I think it is important, especially when speaking with those who are suspicious of Christian doctrine, never to start by trying to push a particular doctrine or set of assumptions. Instead, we must begin with experience and intuition, with the individual, and see to what universals this leads us. I think that if we follow these paths rightly, they will always lead us back to a definite truth. We need not worry about guarding Christian doctrine; if it is true, it will emerge on its own, for reality will always assert itself. All roads will, in the end, lead us back home.
