Literary Devices in The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock

The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock 1
"Let us go and make our visit..."   (The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock)

Notice how Eliot uses repetition in the poem to emphasize Prufrock's intellect. He wanders through the poem much as he does the dirty streets of the red-light district, bringing in images and allusions that aren't organic to the setting but are organic to his experience of it.
