Read full description of the books The Poems of Dylan Thomas:

Do I need to actually write a review of Dylan Thomas’ work? Read this poem. It says more than I ever could:

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.

Isn’t it so powerful and inspiring? Can you not feel the power of the message? It’s a simple one, one we should all heed. Do not go gentle, do not go easy, do not give up, fight until the very end. I find it truly uplifting. When death is upon us, stay strong.

It can also be read as a shout, an angry outburst against the injustice of life. All life dies. Our “creator” has deemed it so. The poem, in a sense, is a rage against this. It is a bold statement that suggests, although the inevitable is coming, we don’t necessarily have to embrace it with open arms. We cannot conquer death, but that doesn’t mean we have to go gentle into that final goodnight. We can spit in its face and struggle for every last heartbeat.

Funnily, I actually recite this poem in my head whilst I’m running. I’m training for a half-marathon at the moment, and these words make me feel determined. It makes me carry on through those last few miles when I’m flat-out and my energy levels have reached zero. It’s a strong sentiment.

Read information about the author

Ebook The Poems of Dylan Thomas read Online! Dylan Marlais Thomas was a Welsh poet who wrote in English. He is regarded by many as one of the 20th century's most influential poets.

In addition to poetry, Thomas also wrote short stories and scripts for film and radio, with the latter frequently performed by Thomas himself. His public readings, particularly in America, won him great acclaim; his booming, at times ostentatious, voice with a subtle Welsh lilt, became almost as famous as his works. His best-known works include the "play for voices" Under Milk Wood and the celebrated villanelle for his dying father, 'Do not go gentle into that good night'. Appreciative critics have also noted the superb craftsmanship and compression of poems such as 'In my craft or sullen art' and the rhapsodic lyricism of Fern Hill.
