Education for leisure by Caroline Duffy

education for leisure by Caroline Duffy

I was concerned to allow a voice to emerge from the poem, rather than a character. We did that at school. This poem is critical of the education system at the time in Britain and the cuts that were made.

I dial the radio and tell the man hes talking to a superstar. Like stealing, education FOR leisure uses the words boredom and Shakespeare and in a sense in both poems these words are opposites. Blakes poem, The Fly, from yesterday, reminded me of this because Duffys poem also has a reference to that line from King Lear (As flies to wanton boys are we to the Gods/ They kill us for their sport.). Why does he want to play God? Today I am going to kill something. I breathe out talent, he writes; I am a genius. Education for Leisure Analysis (Carol Ann Duffy poem).
