These three works have themes that are difficult to find. Other things this year have had themes that were much easier to find. The theme of the first work, The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock, is love in society, or impressions in society, are based on blindness and immateriality. In the beginning he talks about walking down a rundown street, and a dirty restaurant with another person. It isn’t classy like many dates people go on and he even compares it to someone coming out of anesthesia. Although, he doesn’t mind because to other people these things might not look bad as people view things differently. He considers himself for thinking so, although, other people could use his advice. The theme of the second work, Disillusion of 10 o’clock, is conformity of society. You either conform to society or everyone thinks you are an outcast. It talks about how you never see a ghost with stripes or colors. They all look the same and people don’t question it. Then there is the drunk sailor, considered an outcast, dreaming of something different. Basically saying society can be boring and predictable but if you’re different you can experience something interesting. And finally, the last theme of the last poem is that love can survive through anything. It talks about all the passing of the seasons saying it can survive time quite easily. Although, they end up dying but thanks to society, they are buried next to each other to continue the love. Proving love can stay alive even in death. All of these poems are tied together through the theme of society. In the first one, society is what chose what was considered ‘adequate’. While in the second one, it explains the two sides of society, the conformists and the nonconformists and how society can be quite plain and boring. In the third poem, society is what kept the two beings together once they had died. The work I think fits into society today is Disillusion of 10 o’clock. I feel like that is most prevalent to society now because if you don’t fit into society, you get pointed out and picked on. You see it everywhere you go. Nowadays everyone has to be part of a group and share their thoughts or they get pushed away. Even if people think they are different, they most likely not. Especially if they are popular. The one I liked the most was Disillusion. It was quick and simple to getting to the point of the theme. Plus it can easily be tied into today.
