Born in in Leeds, formidably and passionately educated in classics, with wonderful metrical, formal and rhyming skills his version of the York Mystery Plays brilliantly evoked the poetic quality of the world before the King James Bible or the iambic pentameter hit the English language and profoundly political. Dedicated to making serious poetry and ideas as popular as possible, he brings all language into poetry - from Greek to Yorkshire dialect, inarticulate grunts, rhyming couplets and puns; he invented the poem-film, and began the renaissance of translated verse-drama especially Greek plays. What with film, TV, opera, theatre, lyric, satire, elegy, political polemic, love poetry, and poetry of ideas, he has the most diverse command of genre of all poets writing in English today. Many collections, two-volume dramatic works, film scripts see the recent Prometheus and a Selected. He leads into his startling scenario mum's ring, after the incinerator via a universal observation gold survives and an ambiguous you in the second line. To make you ashes could mean "make ashes for you or anyone ".

This is almost always the case, but in what follows I prefer to concentrate less on metrical effects than on the way voices interweave. The line and a half which follows, sketching Demosthenes practicing eloquence on the beach, is intriguing in that its locus as speech is hard to pin down. The following lines contain a curious wavering in the clear interplay of dramatic voices, only part of which is resolved as the poem proceeds. Yet the aggression of this attack, with its harsh alliteration and sarcastic question mark, is out of key with the other narratorial comments in part I, though the tone is re-established in part II. Not the master, nor any spokesman for RP is allowed a direct voice, yet the interchange of speech and implied situation can still be found to ensure a dramatic quality to the verse. Even so, there is no let up in the clamour of voices raised in the poem. A further shift can be found in lines 9 and 10, in that the voice now turns to address a different subject.
This guide is written for students and teachers who are preparing for GCE AS exams in English language and literature. This poem explores cultural knowledge and experience : the author infers all sorts of things she cannot see, by interpreting sounds against what she already knows or thinks she knows. As readers, we may assent to this view - it does seem unlikely that a child would make a guinea fowl sound. But on the other hand, most British children are more likely to have heard live the sound of the fowl than that of the weapon; they will have heard the latter, if anywhere, in representations on film and TV - or even, conventionally, in playground games. That is, the child knows the way he or she is meant to make or simulate a machine gun noise. So why do we think we know that the poet's inference is right?
