Fame and Candle In The Wind

Fame and Candle In The Wind

The ballad Candle In The Wind by Elton John and Bernie Taupin is about the effects of fame and Marilyn Monroe. But the writers said that it could be about anyone who has had their life cut short through fame. The same song was then re-written and played during the funeral of Princess Diana. This lesson uses drama to explore these same themes of how society glorifies fame and immortalises the famous. This is a perfect resource for Key Stage 3, to help students at this level understand and appreciate the themes of this complex ballad in a creative and accessible way.
