This poem is all bout Prufrock’s feelings of inferiority. The poem mainly outlines the how Prufrock is unable to formulate a way of speaking to a woman that he lusts after. This is quite clearly displayed by his constant questioning of, “how should I presume?” Not only does Profrock fail to ever find a way to express himself, but he also excuses his failure to act by professing that there is always more time. Later, however Prufrock must come to terms that time runs out as his hair begins to thin and he becomes more insecure of himself. This overwhelming feeling of inferiority overwhelms Prufrock to the point where he begins to compare himself to a bug pinned to wall labeled and put on display to be grossly examined. The insecure feeling of inferiority only worsens through the poem as Prufrock himself says, “I should have been a pair of ragged claws scuttling across the floors of silent seas,” here he dehumanizes himself and prefers rather to see himself as a bottom feeder. The overlying message of this poem is that feeling of inferiority can inhibit one from finding the love they desire.
