Aging

28 Mar

Those of you who have studied the ‘Poems of the Decade’ anthology this year will hopefully have picked up on the prevalence of poems which tackle issues to do with aging, memory, and reflecting on the past. Well, it isn’t only poets who seem preoccupied with these ideas. Check out the BBC Music post on ‘Songs to help you confront your fear of aging’:

Are there any common themes in these songs and the poems you have studied?
