Is a deeply thoughtful poem.It illustrates human misery and reality of
life.It gives you a wide image of life. Life is not only based on
materialism but, it is based on the"Fruitful essence" of trials and

Eliot's Preludes thrives on mans allienation in thh modern world. Mans lack
of focus and ambition is noticed yet unchanged. Eliot makes man realize
their downfall and uncertainty in this new era, however mans unwillingness
to change is equally their downfall. Eliot basically addresses mans eternal
problems and provides an unsugar coated view into reality.

"Preludes",states the bare reality of life, misery,anarchy etc. This poem
has made me introspect in my life and the world at large , thus changing my
opinion on issues.

The poem gives you an awareness of mans' social unrest in an industrial
society showing us how monotonous life can be when alienating yourself from
society and running after materialism.

Preludes is a deeply thought provoking poem. Eliot wrote this poem to make
mankind understand in waht condition we are living. He lived during the
time of the great depression and therefore, with this poem addressed many
issues which made mankind corrupt but the beauty part is that this poem
will always be relevant for future generations to come.

Prludes is such a poem that illustrates human misery and depression in such
a way that it makes one realise how common and lost our lives are. It also
creates the enthusiasm within a person to persist in chaniging his life
around in such a way that he finds peace and happiness within himself.

Preludes is an interesting poem that brings to light the issue of human
despair which is evident in todays' time. The poem is a prelude to what is
to come in the future - the total moral collapse of the world.

Preludes instills a deep consciouness of mans' degradation, turmoil and
depression in a modern age. It makes one introspect and creates a desire in
you to better your life and those around you.
