This proposal intends to connect the Studies in Modernisms with the research strand of the creation myths and the narrations of origins (Von Franz). The paper aims to investigate the biblical-sapiential presence, specifically of the book of Qohelet, in a central text of the Euro-American modernism: T. S. Eliot’s The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock (1915). Scope of the essay is to analyze, through the lens of the Narrations of Origins in World Cultures and the Arts, the first steps of a modernist Euro-American formal experimentation at the beginnings of the Twentieth century.
