Linguistic Chaos or Poetic Perfection?: A Deconstructive Analysis of Death and the Futility of Life in Two Poems by Dylan Thomas.
Halmstad University, School of Humanities (HUM).
2001 (English)Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor)Student thesis
Abstract [en]
The essay is a decontruction of two poems by Dylan Thomas. This particular style of analysis attempts to prove that “all reading is mis-reading”. I have strived to show that the poems are highly ambigious, and thus riddled with tensions and oppositions. Furthermore, I have endeavoured to show that exposing the text’s indeterminancy will ultimately enlighten the reader. Finally, I have discussed my belief that the poet’s pre-occupation with the cycle of life and death was primarily an avenue for intellectualizing and rationalizing about the inevitable.
