PostSubject: Do Not Go Gentle Into That Good Night   Fri Mar 26, 2010 12:25 pm

Dear ladies,

Thanks to Shaikha Al-Habshan flower I found out that the next poem, "Do Not Go Gentle into that Good Night" by Dylan Thomas, is not in your handouts. So, here it is. Please print it out and prepare the definitions of the difficult words before the lecture.

PS: If a certain poem is not found in your handouts it is no excuse for you not to prepare. You can easily google it and print it out Suspect .



Do Not Go Gentle Into That Good Night

By: Dylan Thomas


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.


This is a youtube video of the poem read by Dylan Thomas himself
