Do Not Go Gentle Into
That Good Night By: Matt Poalillo
and
Allie Zuber Paraphrase Video Attitude Figurative Language "SUN IN FLIGHT" -Remains the same throughout the poem (determined). -Was a good student.... in English.
-A young Thomas excelled in reading and writing as he much preferred to do so in his free time.
-He did not bother with other subjects and dropped out of school early at the age of 16.
-He became a journalist for the South Whales Daily Post.
-Thomas created "Do Not Go Gentle..." for many a reason, the main one being the personal issue of his dad struggling to live.
-The poem was kind of a "stay strong" and "I'm infuriated that you have to die at all". 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 the 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. Do not be weak/fight for yourself. Author: Dylan Thomas 1st Stanza:
-Do not give in so easily
-Age does not matter, fight until your death
-Fight against giving into death 2nd Stanza:
-Smart people know that everyone dies
-They did not do anything with their lives
so they are trying to make the most of
the rest of it 3rd Stanza:
-Good men are upset because everything
that they have done, does not mean
anything 4th Stanza:
-They wanted to seize the day and live
life to the fullest and learned too late
that death would come
-They were on the path to greatness
but they were too late. 5th Stanza:
-People that are both serious and grave bound ("grave" men) can be happy, and
still they rage against death. Nobody wants to die. 6th Stanza:
-You, god, that I speak of, in
heaven, I pray
-Curse,Bless. Death is both a
blessing and a curse.
-Give me the strength to rage
against the light. The Poem was written in the
Romantic style writing, which is
what Dylan Thomas is mostly known for.

(poetry rules and author background/personal life= rockin' poem about death) -ABAABA repeat Theme -Do not give up Rhythm: Repetitive nature of the poem brings about a clear
point the author wants to convey. with few symbols (if any) and a clear "to the point" title and repetition, the poem conveys the message of repelling death at every cost to try and stay alive "GOD'S MERCY AND STRENGTH" = Fierce Tears "Grave men, near death, who see with blinding sight
Blind eyes could blaze like meteors and be gay"
