What is the most important thing that poet has learnt, as far as children are concerned in Roald Dahl’s poem ‘Television’?
The most important thing the poet has learnt, so far as children are concerned, is to never let them near your television set, or better still, not to install that idiotic thing at all in your house.
The poet actually talks about the television addiction of little children. They neglect their studies and outdoor sports for watching TV all the time. According to the poet, it kills their imaginative and creative faculty of mind. So he suggests throwing the TV sets away from home and install a bookshelf in its place.
