Why did Marguerite Yourcenar write about gays if she
herself was a lesbian? Why has she often been accused
of writing about weak women, when she was "fiercely

I don't see at all why Prufrock hates women. His
horror is (at least how I see it) a horror of human
finiteness, and of the love condemned to the borders
of this in-time-packed life.
