Question 11

Examine A.E. Houseman's attitude to life in "To An Athlete Dying Young


Few candidates were able to link the poem with the poet's attitude to life, showing that
life achievements and successes are vanity. The poet praises the athlete for dying
young at his prime i.e. leaving the stage when the ovation was still loud.
This question was fairly attempted by candidates.
