Stuck? Stuck.

     I'm sorry for being gone for a few days. I've been kind of stressed out about some stuff, but anyway, right-o.
I have another favorite poem of mine, which is quite long, a little too long to post on here. "The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock", by T.S. Elliot. Here is an awesome review that I found on it. 







Pretty great concepts, eh? I completely agree, I just wish that he would've gone in deeper. Anyway, can anyone translate the beginning of the poem for me please?


S’io credesse che mia risposta fosse
A persona che mai tornasse al mondo,
Questa fiamma staria senza piu scosse.
Ma perciocche giammai di questo fondo
Non torno vivo alcun, s’i’odo il vero,
Senza tema d’infamia ti rispondo.

  2. S'io believed that my answer was To person who never returned to the world, This staria flame without more jolt. But perciocche giammai of this bottom I do not return alive some, s'i'odo the true one, Without infamy topic I answer to you.

    I feel something might have been lost in translation, somehow.

  4. Hope you aren't gone for too long!

    Even if things aren't going great, you still have to slow down and try to relax. Don't get so stressed.
