05.04 A Son's Plea: Do Not Go Gentle into That Good NightIn modern poetry, the subject is frequently so centered on that the reader and even occasionally, the author gets astray in interpreting it through words and diction. These compositional portions of poetry are commencing to oversaturate poetry and dominate a very vital and originally essential characteristic of this art form structure. In "Do Not Go Gentle into That Good Night" by Dylan Thomas, the structure precisely breaks up the poem into three-line stanza’s and deliberately places repeated phrases to emphasize the inevitability of living life to itsfullest mainly when you are on your way out.To begin with, the first example of the three-line stanza conveying meaning occurs in the very first stanza as it reads, “Old age should burn and rave at close of day;” (line 2, Thomas). This quote demonstrates the idea that you should maintain to live up until your last day on earth.
