Dylan Thomas’s “Do not Gentle into that Good Night” is a poem in which Dylan express the process of aging and the acceptance of death. The speaker seems to think that it is not honorable to accept death quietly for a person filled with life, despite the old age. That death should be fought rather than accepted: “Rage, Rage against the dying of the light” (15). Instead of dying of old age, death should be a resignation from life. We should go out in glory and not simply roll over. In the second stanza, “wise men at their end know dark is right”, despite the fact that the wise men understand that death is inevitable, they should continue to fight. The wise men can’t accept death because there is much that will be left undo within the world. The poem ends with his father, in this sense the speaker express his mourn for the death of his father and how he wanted his father to fight death. Perhaps this is the speaker longing for his father to remain. The speaker wants his father to fight death and not accept it; this shows the difference in wisdom because the wise men understand that death is inevitable and they accept it. The son who is obliviously younger than his father is inexperience and perhaps this creates his view about fighting death.
