You do not do, you do not do
Any more, black shoe
In which I have lived like a foot
For thirty years, poor and white,
Barely daring to breathe or Achoo.
Do not go gentle into that good night
Do not go gentle into that good night,
Old age should burn and rage at close of day;
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.
I don't know where to begin when comparing and contrasting these two poems, I NEED HELP!
Well, what do you know about the authors? For example, Sylvia Plath was greatly affected by the death of her father when she was very young, and it showed in her poetry throughout her whole life. Dylan Thomas was writing about the death of his father also, but in a much different way, imploring him to fight off death. I don't know of any other poem of his which mentions the death of his father, but there may be some. I think you'll have an easier time with this project if you look into the lives of the poets.
