Description

This lesson plan looks at Armitage's use of metaphor in the poem, and ends with students comparing 'Mother, Any Distance' with C Day Lewis' 'Walking Away'.

'Mother, any distance', from Armitage's celebrated 'Book of Matches', is one of 15 poems in AQA's 'Love and Relationships' anthology in the latest GCSE English specification. Our lesson plan helps students become intimately familiar with the poem, its meaning and context.
