How Prufrock Is Self Destructive
Prufrock is a young man who is obsessed with his appearance, or according to him, lack there of. He is aging himself by focusing on the future and how he will grow old. He often talks about how women will say "How his hair is growing thin!" (40) and "how his arms and legs are thin!" (44). Prufrock lives his life feeling as if he is undesirable and unattractive, so much so that he doesn't even think that the mermaids will sing to him.
