The paper enfolds the difference between print and visual media by scrutinizing T.S.Eliot’s Poem “The Love Song of J.Alfered Prufrock.” While reading a book, the author’s writing takes away the reader’s control and makes the readers imagine the situation with the plot. But while watching an audio-visual aid, it replicates the authors’ vision through one’s particular imagination. Nowadays, many poems are presented as audio, visual, and audio-visual sequences. Presenting a scene on the screen is very much appreciated by the audience. Whereas, the audio-visual creator needs to satisfy both the writing of the author and the needs of the audience.
