    • POEM: Do Not Go Gentle Into That Good Night by Dylan Thomas (4/14/2014 5:49:00 PM)

      Andrew Hoellering, Dylan Thomas would not approve, because, although the sentiment may seem right to you, he was using the repetition of the th in father and there to bolster the repetitive hammer blows his form gives the poem, and alone does not reinforce any of the surrounding words in its sound.
      Listen, if you can to a Welsh reading of this poem, which gives the true feel of his use of language.

      1. I agree with Marlene. Why, oh, why did the site not have it read by someone like Cerys Matthews with a good Welsh lilt to her voice. There are enough good Welsh actors too, who would have made a good job of it.

      2, I wonder what others make of the second stanza that says both 'Though wise men at their end know dark is right' and 'they Do not go gentle into that good night' showing opposing views.
