Question and answer
how does dylan thomas present his views on death in do not go gentle into that good night
Thomas encourages us to fight the urge to meander from old age to death without a fight. [ He says, “Old age should burn and rave…” Using “good night” as a euphemism for death, Thomas gives examples of how four different types of men cope with old age and death. At the conclusion of his poem, we see that Thomas’ father is apparently close to death, and we get a glimpse of Thomas’ grief. The first type of man is wise. The poem reads, “Because their words had forked no lightning they/Do not go gentle into that good night.” According to my interpretation of Thomas’ poem, wise men know how
difficult it is to make a lasting impression on this world, but they are willing to die trying. The wise man works until his last breath to “fork lightning.” He does not “go gentle into that good night.” ]
