Do I Dare Disturb the Universe?

If you follow me on Twitter, you might have seen my retweet earlier this month of this fantastic comic strip version of the first part of T.S. Eliot’s The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock. (I wanted to reblog it, but for some reason that option isn’t showing up for me…)

I have an appreciation for older, classic literary works and love seeing them interpreted in new ways. I was immediately compelled and impressed by Julian Peters’ comic, with illustrations that wonderfully matches the evocative – and provocative – imagery of the original poem. After a flurry of positive feedback, he is working on completing the rest of his comic strip adaptation (and looking into the possibilities of publishing it as well).

If you’re already familiar with Prufrock, it is a unique way to reacquaint yourself with the poem or a novel introduction to this classic for newcomers.

Head on over, following the link above, to read it! You can also read more about the poem and how it was written here. Below, listen to T.S. Eliot read his poem.
