The theme in “The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock” was that people are going judge you no matter your social status, how you look, and how you act. In this case, the main character is the one being judged intensely, in which he claims he feels he is an insect under a microscope. This poem develops it’s theme by simply telling the story, his struggles of being judged constantly. The theme of “Disillusionment of 10 o’clock”  is that nobody is creative anymore. This theme is developed by saying people aren’t wearing colors, and that everything is bland. The theme of “Anyone Lived In A Pretty How Town” is that people grow up and they die, and people continue on with their days (this probably isn’t right). This theme is developed when they say that people grow up and forget their childhood. They say that people grow up too fast and die too fast without properly enjoying life, and the people around them don’t really care, and that they just continue on with their own struggles. I think the most important and relevant theme that is still prevalent in our lives today is the theme in “Anyone Lived In A Pretty How Town”. Its relevant because it’s true. People die on a day to day basis and the people around them only care for a few days. The one that i liked to read the most was also “Anyone Lived In A Pretty How Town” because of its unique writing style.
