    • POEM: The Love Song Of J. Alfred Prufrock by T. S. Eliot (9/25/2007 6:26:00 PM)

      That's the point, isn't it, Nick? Prufrock moves between ridiculous and poignant, changing tack every few verses, as if he's laughing at himself every time he gets too serious.

    • POEM: Cinderella by Sylvia Plath (9/25/2007 6:05:00 PM)

      OK, either I or the other comment-writers are missing something here... taking a wild stab-in-the-dark guess, I'm thinking this might be about Cinderella? The poor girl who goes to a ball in a magic ballgown, a complete stranger to everyone there, catches the eyes of all the guests, dances with the prince and then has to flee at midnight before the magic spell breaks? You could add another layer of meaning by seeing Plath as Cinderella, but that would be conjecture. It seems to me that the poem is full of long vowel sounds (long is and as) that suggest gliding, crashing to a halt with the short vowel sounds of the last few words, but maybe I'm imagining that.
