T.S Eliot reading 'The Love Song of Sir Alfred Prufrock'

A professor I had in grammar school some fifteen years ago kicked my class into studying this poem and I've never forgotten it's opening line;

"Let us go then, you and I,
While the evening is spread out against the sky..."

How romantic, but there's more...

I found an original recording of Mr Eliot reading his magnum opus on YouTube.  (Pay attention to the end part where he describes the waves).  It's good stuff!

Thank you for reviving this magnificent work of literature. I am seventy-four years young. You are indeed a wonderful and gifted old writer.
