I am wondering if my message came through from last night because in 
fact we do know some ages.  As I noted, the young man carbuncular is 
twenty-one, as Eliot says he is.  And Eliot said of Prufrock that he was in 
part a man of about forty, and in part himself.  At the time Eliot wrote the 
poem, he was about 22-23.  So by Eliot's account, Prufrock is a kind of 
duality of young and middle aged.
