his is a humorous poem based on a painting of Saint George and the Dragon by
Uccello. The poem consists of three voices who speak in turn:
1. the dragon
2. the maiden
3. St George
The dragon comes across as slightly vain (hence the title). He is disappointed
with the maiden as she isn't particularly attractive and the knight seems not
particularly masculine as conquerors should be (he thinks).
The maiden, however, is very attracted to the dragon but doesn't like St George.
Notice her language is quite sexual in the way it refers to the dragon in particular.
St George is portrayed as someone who is very proud of his qualifications and
his horse (which is likened to a car). He addresses the dragon, arguing that
he (the dragon) has a duty to fulfil the traditional role of a dragon, otherwise
it will have a dire impact on society.
The poem, overall, seems to be about stereotypes. Fanthorpe, in a very comical
way, shatters the traditional image of the three figures in the poem. More widely,
she is looking at how people view themselves and each other. Often how we perceive
ourselves and how others perceive us are quite different.
