|I guess what distinguishes 'Prufrock and Other Observations' |
from 'Poems 1920' is that whereas in the first collection the
"speaker" is only a passive _observer_ and commentator of
his own self as well as of his social ambience, in the latter
collection he is a participant as well in the action of the
poems. But this has perhaps already been observed
by some critics.

That's a good point. Observations imply that there is
an observer and "observables". Subject-object
problematics is, therefore, announced already in the
title of the volume.
