Illustrating Prufrock

I wanted to share this beautiful graphic novel (graphic poem?) edition of Eliot’s The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock. You can tell that the artist has invested a good deal of time in making his interpretation clear visually. Eliot’s writing here is so imagistic that it seems made for such treatment. I know I got a lot out of reading the poem in this version.

Julian Peters, “The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock”

If you like this one, you might poke around on his site. He’s also illustrated Keats and some WWI poetry, amongĀ others.
