Abstract
This study sheds light on "J. Alfred Prufrock's Love Song" which is a poem that shows the disturbance of self-awareness of the narrator of the poems. The thoughts, senses, feelings, and emotions reflect a fifty-year-old man who experienced trauma due to the social situation and the crisis of the First World War. The aim of the study is to investigate the disturbance of self-awareness that the speaker suffers as a result of the societal situation in this era. The study concluded that "Prufrock" is a shy person with a hesitant nature and unable to take any positive or negative action in his life, and the disturbance in self-awareness led him to social anxiety which in turn led to despair, pessimism, isolation, and alienation. These aspects are among the principles of this modern period.
