Rage, rage against the dying of the light. From The Poems of Dylan Thomas, published by New Directions.
Do not go gentle into that good night" is a poem in the form of a villanelle, and the most famous work of Welsh poet Dylan Thomas (1914–1953). Though first published in the journal Botteghe Oscure in 1951, it was written in 1947 when Thomas was in Florence with his family. It was published, along with other stories previously written, as part of Thomas' In Country Sleep, And Other Poems of 1952. The poem was also included in Collected Poems, 1934–1952, first published by Dent in 1952.
The ‘dying of the light’ is also a metaphor for death. Other metaphors derive from the idea, so ‘blind eyes’ and ‘blaze like meteors’ in the penultimate stanza pick up the theme of darkness and light, binary opposites -positive and negative. Two key words convey the essence of the poem, the imperative form of the verb ‘rage’ and its opposite ‘go gentle’. Wider significance The poem has been widely quoted and adapted in other media

The two repeating refrains in this poem, naturally enough, form the primary message that informs the meaning of the work. When Dylan Thomas references that good night, he is using it as a metaphor for the end of life, and as a parallel to the dying of the light, which is a symbol for the same idea. The principal idea for this poem is that human beings should resist death with all of their strength before the end. The two refrains act as a mirror for each other with regards to their connotation as well
The dying of the light is a reference to darkness - actually losing sight - and ultimately failing health, and the painful inevitability of death. Yet, this poem is not gentle or dark. It is a strong invocation for us to live boldly and to fight. In any endeavour we choose to pursue and any struggles we face, we should persevere and remember to "not go gentle into that good night" whether the 'good night' is failure, or death. 19. k views · View 580 Upvoters.

Thomas uses the words night and light as metaphors for death and life and alternates them to hammer home his point. No more apt literary reference could be applied at this historical juncture of The United States of America.
Do not go gentle into that good night is a villanelle poem by Welsh poet Dylan Thomas. Originally published in the journal Botteghe Oscure in 1951, it has also appeared in Thomas' 1952 collection In Country Sleep and other poems. The poem was originally written for Thomas' dying father and has no title other than its first line, which serves as a refrain throughout the poem. The poem's other equally famous refrain is "Rage, rage against the dying of the light".
Rage, rage against the dying of the light. Finally the poet addresses his father who is in a sad and dying situation (on the sad height). Finally, the two recurring lines end the poem giving the message again not to accept death in a gentle way. Rather, we have to fight furiously and resist it. Thus the poem ‘Do Not Go Gentle Into That Good Night’ closes with the same message it started with.
