Dylan Thomas is a Welch poet who deals with themes such as life, death and time. He is most known for his poem “Do Not Go Gentle into That Good Night”, which is a villanelle directed at his dying father, asking him not to die peacefully, but to leave his impression on the world and to go out with a bang. Additionally, another poem by Thomas which deals with the concept of death, and the force of time is “The Force That through the Green Fuse Drives the Flower”.
