How wonderful that my very favorite poem, “The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock” by T.S. Eliot, is now out in a comic-book adaptation by Julian Peters. I have posted about this poem several times, including one in which I embedded a lovely video of Michael Gough performing the poem.
Poetry resembles performing art, but also visual art; it is to a great extent the result of turning words into images. Thus it is fitting that someone should turn that idea around, and render poems as graphic art. Peters has done an excellent job. I especially love the the box for the line “Do I dare disturb the universe?”
