Dylan Thomas' Poems of 1933
Present how, in the poems of 1933, Dylan Thomas uses language and poetic
type to explore the two his individual metaphysical perspective and his placement
as a poet person in relation to the remainder of culture.
In this essay I will check out how Dylan Thomas uses language and poetic
kind to explore his own metaphysical viewpoint great position being a
poet regarding the rest of society.
Let me begin by looking at and examining the poetry that explore DT's
spiritual ideas. In this part of my analysis We are analysing
relevant parts of the next poems; The force that through the
green fuse', And death shall have no dominion' and Why east breeze
From examining the initial poem The force that through the green fuse' I actually
see the picture of life being the force' and living things are the
fuses'. I think that what DT is trying to say is that a lot more a
constant cycle rather than stops, it is only the physical elements
which the force' need to possess for being life which can be the constraint
to the going and continual cycle. I do believe the key lexis here is
fuse'; the word fuse has many several connotations within the
context of this poem (also note that the fuse is green a further
reference to nature and natural things). One such which means that
could be derived from it is that of a blend used in an electrical
socket. These kinds of fuse breaks if there is a lot of current streaming
through at once. On the other hand the term fuse also can means to
become a member of together, to combine. So , the force that combines human kind and
nature as one is in the same time the force that divides all of us and
inhibits us via understanding why we can be found....
... nature in
so that it will create bead and wine for Holy Communion. This is show in line
10 Man broke the sunlight, pulled the wind down' the phrase sun' can also
be a pun for child Jesus.
In the last stanza the reader is definitely addressed directly you', taking
them in the poem and allowing them to see what damage man is usually
causing. This individual reminds all of them that this individual too is a part of characteristics, which seems
to claim that his destruction is an inevitable a part of his purpose
Total I feel that these types of poems provide a representation of DT's location
as a poet person in relation to the rest of culture. I feel that he is trying
to express that, as a poet, he could be isolated from the rest of civilisation
and that it can be his work to help readers see the falseness of contemporary society
and convince them to not change it, yet realise the illusion and
appreciate the magic of mother nature and all normal things.
