Into my heart an air that kills From yon far country blows What are those blue remembered hills What spires what farms are those This is the land of lost content I see it shining plain The happy highways where I went And cannot come again After reading the introduction to the play I realized that it was not going to be a friendly play about a group of seven year olds There was going to be something to give it a malicious twist The play begins with one of the small boys playing happily by themselves My first reaction was seeing as the children are being played by adults this will look quite odd What I was having to understand was that it was being played by adults to emphasise that children dont always play in a friendly matter When the boy starts pretending he is an aeroplane he quotes Then be all dead Dead Dead Burnt to nothing He has said that all the people he has imagined will die and be burnt This is a very disturbing thing for such a young child to be thinking instead we would expect him to say and they will all land softly or a similar gentle mannered idea As two friends Peter and Willie are united and their behaviour seems quite normal and playful However what shocked me was when Peter started beating Willie physically over an apple His behaviour is very spiteful and threatens to spit right in the middle of Willies face This is a side of a seven year old that I have never seen or imagined before All children have people that they look up to and compare themselves with In this case it is a boy called Wallace Wilson Peter doesnt seem to like his name being mentioned which I think is a result of his jealousy Overall
