Poem Analysis of “Do Not Go Gently into That Good Night” by Dylan Thomas
Posted by Nicole Smith, Dec 6, 2011 Poetry No Comments Print
In this analysis of “Do Not Go Gentle into that Good Night” by Dylan Thomas, it will be explored how this is a poem that explores the helplessness associated with growing old and inching toward death. There are six stanzas in “Do Not Go Gentle into that Good Night” by Dylan Thomas with a simple rhyme structure that belies the complex message of the poem. In general, it is clear that this is a poem about death and dying but when examined closer, it becomes apparent that it is also about life and how it is lived. Through the structure of “Do Not Go Gentle into that Good Night” by Dylan Thomas as well as the use and choice of language that invokes certain images and employs certain techniques that arouse deep imagery/
The speaker of the poem “Do Not Go Gentle into that Good Night” by Dylan Thomas seems to think it is not honorable or befitting for a great or interesting man to die quietly in old age and he encourages the reader to think that death is something that should be fought rather than mutely accepted. Interestingly, this poem can be divided into three parts, the first of which acts as an introduction to the speaker’s message. This is followed by four stanzas that offer examples of what he is expressing followed by the last stanza, the third part, in which the tone becomes far more personal as the speaker talks…...

Minto's Principle

...WHAT IS THE PYRAMID PRINCIPLE? DESCRIPTION Barbara Minto's Pyramid Principle is a hierarchically structured thinking and communication technique that can be used to precede good structured writing. The Minto Pyramid Principle assumes that you already know how to write good sentences and paragraphs. It concentrates instead on the thinking process that should precede the writing. The core of Minto's thinking method is to group Ideas in a presenter's thought process into small clusters that support the main Thesis in increasing detail (granularity). See the picture on the right. Supporting arguments can be based on: Inductive reasoning: thinking process in which the premises of an argument support the conclusion but do not ensure it. Each of the elements in row two of the pyramid answers a question (e.g. why, how, how do you know) about the thesis above it. Deductive reasoning: thinking process in which the conclusion is necessitated by previously known facts. One element logically leads to the next. The best way to make any point or argument, says Barbara, is to structure the thinking in this way. USAGE OF THE PYRAMID PRINCIPLE The technique is most useful for those people in an organization who must write analytical documents, on the basis of which senior managers must make decisions. STEPS IN THE PYRAMID There are several components to the overall method: * Build the Minto Pyramid. * Structure ideas to be communicated within the "Situation,......

In this paper we will examine advantages and disadvantages or both approaches. Finally which is more applicable in real world settings. Introduction After incidents like recession, there have been discussions about principles based versus rules based among accountants, governments. As multinational businesses are increasing, there is need is an increased demand for high quality comparable financial information. “Accurate and consistent information is essential if the allocation of financial capital is to truly reflect comparative advantage, encourage diversified investments, and minimize cost of capital”.(Jermakowicz & Mcguire, 2002). If we look at two major accounting bodies, IFRS and US GAAP. “The IFRS emphasizes the fundamental importance of standards that focus on principle, drawn clearly from IASB’s conceptual framework, rather than on detailed rules”. (Jermakowicz & Mcguire, 2002). “This approach requires both companies and their auditors to exercise......

Patterson II. 5-27-13 Principles of Marketing Project 1 When a person is considering selling a product there are many factors that must be added in, there are many steps that one must be familiar with if they choose to go about having success. There are no short cuts a person must know their research and have a good understanding on what the product is that they are working with as well as who they are trying to sell this product to and this process is called marketing. Marketing can be used in all walks and areas of life because it is simply value of a product, and or service being expressed to the buyers or customers.  Marketing includes many factors from the selling and sales of a product to the overall strategy of the advertising of the product or service. Marketing does have a major influence on business today for it can mean the life or death or a product or even company. Being that if a product is not marketed properly either people will not be aware of the product or possible customers can get the wrong persecution of a product, which can deter them from being affiliated with the good or service.   The product that I selected was the Rolex wristwatch.  A man introduced this product by the name of Hans Wilsdorf.  Wilsdorf has been known for the creation of one of the finest Swiss watches ironically he was a man from Kulmbach Germany, who opened Wilsdorf & Davis......

Fletchers Principles

...associated with this topic. Their theory was a completely different look from the tradition Christian ethics “Christians cannot go on trying to lay down the law”- Fletcher, 1966. Agape- a midway point between legalism and antinomianism. Situation ethics is mostly teleological apart from its principle of love, because in the end result actions are right or wrong depending on their consequences, and by this it is simply embracing a form of relativism. “If the emotional and spiritual welfare of both parents and children in a particular family can be served by a divorce, then love requires it” – Fletcher. Situation ethics uses principles to illustrate the situation, however Situation Ethics does not direct the action. Fletcher divides these principles into two categories, four working principles (what ethics should enclose) and six fundamental principles (how the ethics is applied). The four working principles are: Pragmatism, relativism, positivism and personalism. Pragmatism: the course of action should work; Relativism: always reject words like ‘never’; Positivism: love is the most important criteria no matter what; and Personalism: people come first, not the law. The six fundamental principles are: love decides what should be done; actions are ‘good’ however only if they bring about agape (love and justice are the same) this applies to everyone. Love is teleological, the consequences matter! Love is not ‘liking’ it’s not an emotion and does not expect anything in......

...INTRODUCTION TO PRINCIPLES OF MANAGEMENT DEFINITIONS Management is a process of achieving organizational goals by engaging in the function of planning, organizing, leading and controlling. Kibera (1996) defines management as a set of activities directed at the efficient and effective utilization of resources in pursuit of one or more objectives. A manager is a person responsible for directing the efforts aimed at helping the organization achieve its goals. Managerial performance is the measure of how efficient and effective a manager is i.e. how well he/she determines and achieves appropriate objectives. Organizational performance is the measure of how efficient and effective an organization is i.e. how well it achieves appropriate objectives. MANAGEMENT FUNCTION Management is referred to as a process because it is a systematic way of doing things. Like any other process, all managers engage in certain interrelated activities in order to achieve their desired goals. Four of the key management functions are:- a) Planning - Is the process of setting goals and deciding how best to achieve them. b) Organizing - Involves allocating and arranging human and non human resources for the successful implementation of plans c) Leading - Is the process of influencing others to engage in work behavior necessary to reach the organization goals. d) Controlling - Involves regulating organizational activities......

Management Principles

...Management Principles Introduction Management is a vital role of the HR department that ensures that an organization has what it takes to accomplish its goals and objectives. It comprises interrelated social and technical functions and activities that pull people and other resources together in a formal organizational setting in the effort of facilitating the achievement of these goals. Management principles refer to some strategically developed guidelines and set timelines that are used to organize staff, maintain organizational structure, delegate authorities, and establish policies and procedures in the view of implementing the vision of any organization. Henry Fayol, a Frenchman and a coal-mining engineer, developed fourteen management principles that form the basis for today’s effective organizational management. Fayol’s management principles help managers to make crucial decisions towards the accomplishment of individual and organizational objectives. Apparently, management and leadership go hand in hand in the process of running an organization. On the other hand, Stauffacher describes leadership as an interpersonal role of an individual to influence and provide purpose, direction, motivation, and support of other people in the achievement of the mission. Leadership is the most essential element of the management process. However, it is knowledge, skills and experience that culminate into a leader’s effectiveness. Therefore, the objective of this paper is to......

Accounting Principles

...Accounting Principles There are general rules and concepts that govern the field of accounting. These general rules–referred to as basic accounting principles and guidelines–form the groundwork on which more detailed, complicated, and legalistic accounting rules are based. For example, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) uses the basic accounting principles and guidelines as a basis for their own detailed and comprehensive set of accounting rules and standards. The phrase "generally accepted accounting principles" (or "GAAP") consists of three important sets of rules: (1) the basic accounting principles and guidelines, (2) the detailed rules and standards issued by FASB and its predecessor the Accounting Principles Board (APB), and (3) the generally accepted industry practices. If a company distributes its financial statements to the public, it is required to follow generally accepted accounting principles in the preparation of those statements. Further, if a company's stock is publicly traded, federal law requires the company's financial statements be audited by independent public accountants. Both the company's management and the independent accountants must certify that the financial statements and the related notes to the financial statements have been prepared in accordance with GAAP. GAAP is exceedingly useful because it attempts to standardize and regulate accounting definitions, assumptions, and methods. Because of generally accepted accounting......

The Holographic Principle

...The Holographic Principle Andrew J. Birk Jr. Argosy University Page 1 Abstract The holographic principle; a seemingly abstract idea almost out of reach from the mentality of the average person that suggests the entire basis of existence is merely illusory images. William Blake, the early 18th century English poet in Auguries of Innocence made allegory to this notion: "To see the world in a grain of sand, and to see heaven in a wild flower, old infinity in the palm of your hands, and eternity in an hour." The idea that everything in the world is subjective and the physical manifestations of matter are purely a construct of observation. The properties of certain immutable cosmic laws of the universe, physics and even mentality intertwine to depict a reality of literal imagination. The purpose of this thesis is to prove this very cogitation; the universe is most likely intangible and thus holographic by nature. Since, as human beings, our experience is totally confined to perception and it’s interpretation and due to many anomalous events and devices within the physical world; there lies credence in this theory. Anomalous objects such as black holes and their “informational paradox”, dark matter, atomic structure and even the manner of which the brain works all play a crucial role in supporting this outrageous, yet sensible idea. Keywords: quantum physics, reality, gravity,......

...Management in all business and organizational activities is the act of getting people together to accomplish desired goals and objectives using available resources efficiently and effectively. Management comprises planning, organizing, staffing, leading or directing, and controlling an organization (a group of one or more people or entities) or effort for the purpose of accomplishing a goal. Resourcing encompasses the deployment and manipulation of human resources, financial resources, technological resources and natural resources. Since organizations can be viewed as systems, management can also be defined as human action, including design, to facilitate the production of useful outcomes from a system. This view opens the opportunity to 'manage' oneself, a pre-requisite to attempting to manage others. Theoretical scope At first, one views management functionally, such as measuring quantity, adjusting plans, meeting goals. This applies even in situations planning does not take place. From this perspective, Henri Fayol (1841–1925)[2] considers management to consist of six functions: forecasting, planning, organizing, commanding, coordinating and controlling. He was one of the most influential contributors to modern concepts of management. Another way of thinking, Mary Parker Follett (1868–1933), defined management as "the art of getting things done through people". She described management as philosophy.[3] Some people, however, find this definition useful but far too......

Anthropic Principle

...“Response on the Anthropic Principle” The Anthropic Principle, formally proposed at a conference in Poland by Brandon Carter in 1973, is a theory that strongly suggests that humanity holds a special place in the Universe. This topic has become widely discussed and debated topic among scientists. Two branches of the theory are the strong anthropic principle (SAP) and the weak anthropic principle (WAP). The SAP states, “The Universe must have those properties which allow life to develop within it at some stage in its history” ( This branch of the anthropic principle has commonly been used in the argument for intelligent design (ID), which puts forth the proposition that a designer is responsible for the balance of the laws of mathematics and physics that ultimately hold our universe together. The WAP says, “The observed values of all physical and cosmological quantities are not equally probable but they take on the values restricted by the requirement that there exist sites where carbon-based life can evolve and by the requirement that the Universe be old enough for it to have already done so” ( This is simply saying that if people were not here to observe and if the universe did not work as it does, then we could not ask why we are here and why the universe works like it does. Although the SAP and WAP are somewhat different, ultimately they both appear to agree that human life is special given all of the circumstances it takes for......

Bernoulli's Principle

...Garibay, Andrés Resp21 04/04/14 Bernoulli's Principle Bernoulli's Principle is named after the Dutch-Swiss mathematician, named Daniel Bernoulli. He revealed his principle in his 1783 book titled Hydrodynamica. In it it states that a fluid without viscosity when it increases in speed will decrease in pressure and in the fluid's potential energy. Bernoulli's principle can be applied to many types of fluid flow through the use of whats called Bernoulli's equation. There are actually different variations of the Bernoulli equation for different applications. The simple form of Bernoulli's principle is used for incompressible flows like most liquid flows, and also for compressible flows like gases moving at low speeds. The volume rate of flow is Vrate = Vol./sec = Av Bernoulli's principle can be taken from the principle of conserving energy. This principle states that, in a steady flow, the sum of all forms of mechanical energy in a fluid along a streamline is the same at all points on that streamline. This can only be achieved if the sum of the kinetic energy and potential energy remain constant. If the fluid is flowing out of a container, the sum of all forms of energy will remain the same throughout all streamlines because in a container the energy per unit mass will remain constant everywhere in the container. Pressure and the fluids' own weight are the only things that affect fluid particles. When a fluid flows horizontally and along a section of a......

Ethical Principles

...Ethical Principles John Durham III PSY/305 March 7, 2016 Dr. Daven Salmi Ethical Principles Introduction The ethical issue that I chose to examine was an article about the relationship between ethical and abusive coaching behaviors and student-athlete well-being. I found this article very interesting because not a lot of people are aware of the ethical issues that have been and are currently going on in the athletic background. Believe it or not there are many ethical issues that relate to psychology in the athletic field. Ethical Issues in Collegiate Athletics One of the biggest ethical issues in collegiate athletics was the abusive behaviors of the coaches to the athletes. This is a big ethical issue because the actions and behavior of the coaches resulted in the players to cheat. When you look at coaches you think of them as the parent of many children on the field or in the gym. The ability of coaches to impact the performance of their athletes is well established (Horn, 2008; Weiss, Smith, & Stuntz, 2008). When a coach instructs an athlete to perform certain actions the first response of the athlete is to do what the coach says. Part of the duty of coach is to prepare athletes for competition through physical training, planning, and instructions; as well as designing strategies and game plans that affect the performance of their athletes and teams during competition. Preparing and motivating athletes to succeed during competition is an important......

It Guiding Principles

...Information Technology Guiding Principles Information technology services are governed by a set of guiding principles. These principles were developed to express the fundamental concepts and guiding themes for global information technology initiatives, and to assure that activities and IT accomplishments are aligned with corporate strategic goals. Guiding principles document the essential notions for information technology services, provide direction to assure that common goals exist, and communicate a unified message. Ideally, every action taken within the information technology environment should be assessed against the following guiding principles: Customer Driven Solutions that Enable Business Achievement. Customer outreach is critical to ensuring current and future investments are aligned to enable the achievement of corporate strategic business goals. Maintain an Adaptable Infrastructure. The infrastructure must be dynamic yet secure, evolving from the current state to a target state that uses reference architectures to incorporate emerging technologies when appropriate and plan for end of life cycle systems. An adaptable infrastructure also promotes the reuse of viable existing systems, which reduces overall complexity and redundancy. Information is a Strategic Corporate Asset. Quality information is necessary for informed investment decisions and planning. Models and metrics are useful tools to define the architecture...
