The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock"
“I grow old … I grow old …
I shall wear the bottoms of my trousers rolled.
Shall I part my hair behind? Do I dare to eat a peach?
I shall wear white flannel trousers, and walk upon the beach.
I have heard the mermaids singing, each to each.
I do not think that they will sing to me.
I have seen them riding seaward on the waves
Combing the white hair of the waves blown back
When the wind blows the water white and black.
We have lingered in the chambers of the sea
By sea-girls wreathed with seaweed red and brown
Till human voices wake us, and we drown.”
The great master poet TS Eliot seated with his trousers rolled. This artwork is incredible. Just take a look at the clean lines that make the mermaids and the .50 sniper rifle. This is intelligent swag for badass people. Every art piece that we create for Spotterup symbolizes man's constant struggle to find purpose and meaning in his life. Who better to make artwork about than the great poet T.S. Eliot?
Indecisiveness, procrastination, disconnection and reconnecting, loss of self. The poem is an, "examination of the tortured psyche of the prototypical modern man—overeducated, eloquent, neurotic, and emotionally stilted. Prufrock, the poem’s speaker, seems to be addressing a potential lover, with whom he would like to “force the moment to its crisis” by somehow consummating their relationship. But Prufrock knows too much of life to “dare” an approach to the woman: In his mind he hears the comments others make about his inadequacies, and he chides himself for “presuming” emotional interaction could be possible at all."
Timing and Decision making. Where does a sniper's rifle and a warrior's psyche fit into all of this?
S’io credesse che mia risposta fosse
A persona che mai tornasse al mondo,
Questa fiamma staria senza piu scosse.
Ma percioche giammai di questo fondo
Non torno vivo alcun, s’i’odo il vero,
Senza tema d’infamia ti rispondo.
Spotterup promotes the idea of the classical "whole" man found in ancient texts. For our modern day he is the GUNFIGHTER, WRITER, WILDMAN, MONK: Man of Action, Man of Intellect, Man of Emotion, Man of Spirit. This sticker is part of our MONK and WRITER series. Expect to see many more designs under this archetype.
Consider the Athenian ideal of a balanced education. From the book Greek Realities: Life and Thought in Ancient Greece, By Finley Hooper "They could play some flute but should not neglect wrestling." They avoided the excesses of life. They might focus on music or philosophy but spent enough time so that their bodies did not become soft."
