the love song of j. alfred prufrock

By the end of the poem, Prufrock feels ostracized from the society of women, the "mermaids singing, each to each. / I do not think that they will sing to me" (124-125).He feels women are beautiful creatures and he, a mere mortal oaf of a man. Here we see Prufrock’s continued idolatry of women and his paralysis in comprehending that they are not mermaids but gifted and flawed individuals just like himself.
