Yes, there's an ironic dimension to this repeated harping on
"Michaelangelo". (The italian sculptor made masculine figures 
of enviable virility and strength.) It's an ironic dig at Prufrock's 
emasculated body. No wonder, he becomes too self-conscious 
and suffers the shame of "wriggling on the wall" like a worm. 
=============================
Is that emasculated or ematiated?
