problems which plague him throughout his life. He can't even see the point in expressing his love because of the fear of being rejected. Elliot's depiction of the worries of aging is a major aspect incorporated into the poem. Although Prufrock is a man of knowledge and society he is still a misfit because of a little characteristic he can do nothing about. Age kills us all, but for Prufrock it has already killed him.
