Description

'Yes, I remember Adlestrop—
The name, because one afternoon
Of heat the express-train drew up there
Unwontedly. It was late June.'

Will you remember 'Adlestrop'? Chances are you will, for this simple, 16-line poem remains one of the most popular and intriguing in English literature. Composed shortly before the outbreak of the war that would claim Thomas's life, 'Adlestrop' is a flowing meditation on a now vanished rural idyll.

Our lesson plan asks students to consider modern rail travel, then introduces the poem through a gap-fill exercise that focuses on Thomas's more unusual word choices. It ends with students reading a newspaper article on the 100th anniversary of Thomas's marvellous poem.
