Zipped up poetry program. An at-a-glance resource to enable a discussion of the poem 'Rugby league game' by James Kirkup. It includes notes on background and biography while touching on theme, rhetorical devices, imagery, diction, contrasts, irony and other relevant aspects of the poem. It is a very useful product to facilitate a wider interpretation of the subject matter and further debate. Please ensure that the students (and teacher) have a legitimate copy of the poem for their own use as this version is represented here only as a vehicle for the notes.
