Dylan Thomas - Do Not Go Gentle Into That Good Night - Lecture by Dr. Barker

The poem by Dylan Thomas ends with "Rage, rage against the dying of the light".  It was written for his father at the onset of blindness, but has also been taken for a simile of death, and a refusal to give up and die, but to keep up the fight to accomplish what is worthy of a life. It seemed apropos.

I have saved the YouTube lecture to watch later. After starting it, I saw that it was over 44 minutes long! It is fascinating enough to come back to, and I appreciate the link and introduction to this famous poem. Thank you :).
