Why is Prufrock a modern man. Give reason for that.

Prufrock isn't your classic stoic alpha-male. He symbolic of the modern man. Prufrock is overeducated, neurotic, sensitive (overly sensitive?), articulate and poetic. He muses about missed opportunities and questions unresolved about the opposite sex. This is the new man, not strong and silent but vulnerable and accessible.
