Lights Out Reference to Context
These lines have been taken from the poem “Lights Out” written by Edward Thomas.
In this poem the poet has compared “sleep” to an immeasurable forest. It is so deep that all paths leading to it come to an end there. All the lights are put out and man cannot find his way. He is lost there. Sleep is the greatest blessing. It overpowers everyone. No one can i away from it. After the day‟s long, hectic activities, everyone has to reach this forest. The implicit idea is perhaps of death.
Note: Pre-school education in the UK. The obligatory status has not. Currently, it covers about 25% of children 3-4 years of age. Across the country there is a significant number of well-equipped private and public preschool institutions. There are other types of qualification certificates. In the private sector, training begins at age 7. Before this age, children attend a kindergarten or a special school at the chosen educational institution. Up to the age of 13, they study in an elementary school, sometimes called a preparatory school, and then, successfully passing the exams, enter secondary school. At the age of 16 they take the same first level exams as children attending public school. By the age of 16, regardless of the type of school attended, the student, like the hero at the crossroads, must decide which way to choose: whether to continue education so that he will subsequently enter the university, or to receive vocational training and start working.
