Do Not Go Gentle Into That Good Night
by Dylan Thomas
-Title- This poem is about someone telling another to go in with a fight.
-Paraphrase- Do not leave this world without a fight. Wise, good, wild, and grave men, rage, rage against the dying of the light. Curse, bless, me now with your courageous tears, do not go gently, rage against the dying of the light.
Do not go gentle into that good night, rage rage, against the dying of the light!
-Connotation/Attitude/Tone- Burn, rage, dying, lightning, frail, and blind shows that the tone is sad. Danced, sun, blaze, and light shows that the tone is content. Some parts of the poem is agressive.
-Shift- The poem shifts at the very end. It goes from someone talking to a general view of people to someone personal, his father.
-Title- This poem is about someone recalling death and telling what he learned to the audience.
-Theme- Never go down without a fight even if you loose hope.
