One caring about illiteracy (9)


I believe the answer is:


'illiteracy' is the definition.
(I've seen this in another clue)

'one caring about' is the wordplay.
'about' indicates anagramming the letters.
'onecaring' is an anagram of 'IGNORANCE'.

(Other definitions for ignorance that I've seen before include "State of unknowing" , "Bliss perhaps" , "'Where . . . . . . . . . is bliss, 'tis folly to be wise'" , "bliss, they say" , "Not knowing" .)

I've seen this clue in The Telegraph.
