Prufrock is a poem that's way too philosophical to be
reduced to a simple question of sexual invitation or a
fear of someone's answer... But right, different
minds, different interpretations... After all, here we
should maybe take into account what Fichte said for
philosophy: "the kind of philosophy one chooses
depends upon the kind of person one is".
