The Love Song of J Alfred Prufrock

TS Eliot’s poem was first published on 15 June, 1915. To mark its centenary this year, artist Mat Collishaw has made a short film in response to the poem, which is read by Eliot himself.

While Alan Yentob, in a Radio 4 documentary, discusses the work with psychologist Adam Phillips and singer Emmy the Great. It also features readings by Jeremy Irons, Ben Whishaw and Eliot himself.
