According to my daily Google Alert for poetry, “Poetry is ‘in the ascendant’ with young people as the iPad generation begins to reject the consumer society, according to the Poet Laureate Carol Ann Duffy. …”
Now, wouldn’t the eldest of any “iPad generation” be not quite 10 weeks old? And in England, less than that? I couldn’t believe Duffy would make such a ridiculous statement (aren’t iPads for content consumption?), and, thankfully, she didn’t. It’s from the lede, but iPads are never mentioned in the article itself.
I did write this post on an iPad.
