Do Not Go Gentle Into That Good Night Analysis



Author: poem of Dylan Thomas Type: poem Views: 53

Sponsored Links



Do not go gentle into that good night,

Old age should burn and rave at close of day;

Rage, rage against the dying of the light.



Though wise men at their end know dark is right,

Because their words had forked no lightning they

Do not go gentle into that good night.



Good men, the last wave by, crying how bright

Their frail deeds might have danced in a green bay,

Rage, rage against the dying of the light.



Wild men who caught and sang the sun in flight,

And learn, too late, they grieved it on its way,

Do not go gentle into that good night.



Grave men, near death, who see with blinding sight

Blind eyes could blaze like meteors and be gay,

Rage, rage against the dying of the light.



And you, my father, there on that sad height,

Curse, bless, me now with your fierce tears, I pray.

Do not go gentle into that good night.

Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

I think its about how even though people get old and worn out..they need to resist death and "rage against the dying of the light". But, in the end he knows that everyone dies so live life at its fullest. His father is his inspiration for this poem and he is also dying and he is very close to his father.

the poem is about fighting and resisting death.. but in the end everyone finds out that death is part of one's life and that it is inevitable

I think that this poem is about a man and his dad. The speaker of the poem is the son and gives several reasons why someone should hold on to life and try to live longer. I think that the reason the speaker is giving these reasons is because his father is getting old and close to dying. I think the son is very close to his father and is not ready to lose him to death.
