Eliot reads Prufrock

I don't hear this poem in my head as lyrically as Eliot seems to read it, but veryvery cool. My reading of it isn't the standard, of course. From Choriamb:



The anesthetized line, too sing songy but the I am no prophet line is just as I hear it. Now I want to hear him read it without the music.

  2. You're welcome. I think I had heard Eliot's voice before, but I don't think it was him reading his poetry. I love Prufrock, so this made me especially happy.
