English essay: Step One: The Paraphrase, writing homework help
Anonymous

Question Description

This is one of three drafts

Task:

Select any one of the poems you have read thus far (of course, you may use any notes and assignments you have completed already!). Paraphrase and explicate it.

Requirements:

Step One: The Paraphrase

  • Create a two-column table. You will have the original poem with the title and author in the left column. In the right column, paraphrase the poem, keeping the perspective and tense, line by line.

Step Two: The Explication

  • Write an essay that clearly explicates the poem. Explain the content/message/theme of the poem and discuss the effect of its rhetorical and poetic devices.
    • The introduction will introduce the author and title of the work. Your thesis should state the central thematic statement of the poem and tie it to rhetoric/syntax.
    • You will need to tackle one stanza at a time, dealing with every line in the poem. Include specific claims, integrated textual evidence, and thorough warrants. Evidence must be quoted and cited.
    • Make sure to include the vocabulary, rhetorical devices, and purposeful grammar you have learned this year.
    • The conclusion should not be a summary. Instead, end by focusing on the concluding lines of the poem to tie everything together, discussing a larger pattern of the poem, or incorporating research and relating it to your thoughts.


Do Not Go Gentle into That Good Night

Dylan Thomas

Do not go gentle into that good night,

Old age should burn and rave at close of day;

Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

Though wise men at their end know dark is right,

Because their words had forked no lightning they

Do not go gentle into that good night. 5

Good men, the last wave by, crying how bright

Their frail deeds might have danced in a green bay,

Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

Wild men who caught and sang the sun in flight,

And learn, too late, they grieved it on its way, 10

Do not go gentle into that good night.

Grave men, near death, who see with blinding sight

Blind eyes could blaze like meteors and be gay,

Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

And you, my father, there on the sad height, 15

Curse, bless, me now with your fierce tears, I pray.

Do not go gentle into that good night.

Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

Do not go gentle into that good night,

You should not accept death softly

Old age should burn and rave at close of day;

Old people should enjoy themselves
passionately without fear of death

Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

You have to face your last day fiercely

Though wise men at their end know dark is
right,
Because their words had forked no lightning
they
Do not go gentle into that good night.

Even if wise men accepts that death is
obvious in life
They might have not achieved much in their
life
They should fight against it because they have
not made enough contribution to life

Good men, the last wave by, crying how
bright
Their frail deeds might have danced in a
green bay,
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

Good men face death by remembering their
accomplishments in life
They know that their great work may not be
remembered
They have to soldier on until their
contribution is appreciated

Wild men who caught and sang the sun in
flight,
And learn, too late, they grieved it on its way,

Wild men wasted their time when they had
the chance
They realize they are immortal when it is too
late
They should not give in to death until they
recover their wasted time

Do not go gentle into that good night.

Grave men, near death, who see with blinding
sight

Grave men who are at the point of death,
