Let us go then, you and I ...

The recent facebook 'post a poem and get a poet' meme showed a dearth of poetic sensibility on my feed, but what it did do (thank you Ceridwen!) was get me to go back and read again TS Eliot's The Love Song of J Alfred Prufrock.

 

And then stumble across various readings, including Eliot's own, linked in the title, and also:

 

Anthony Hopkins'

 

and, oh kill me now, who is this VERY famous actor?

 

Christopher Plummer (?)

 

I like Eliot's own best; followed by Hopkins', which at first I thought too rushed but after a couple of listens, like his modulation of timing and emphasis.
