PRUFROCK AND OTHER OBSERVATIONS 1917
For Jean Verdenal, 1889-1915 mort aux Dardanelles
Or puoi la quantitate Comprender dell' amor ch'a te mi scalda, Quando dismento nostra vanitate Trattando l'ombre come cosa salda.
The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock
The winter evening settles down With smell of steaks in passageways.
