Do not go Gentle into that Good Night… and Yourself

Interstellar is a great movie, and its something that you need to watch at least 3 times to capture part of its true meaning. One of the most important scene of the movie, is a short one, and is when Michael Cane reads a passage of the poem from Dylan Thomas “Don’t Go Gentle into that Good Night”.

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.

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,
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,
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.

The reason why we should understand the words of this poem, is that is an invocation to never settle, even if we see no options or few possibilities of success. Dylan wrote this piece of art to address the need to face the real problems and “to not be gentle at the end of things“.

In the movie interstellar the meaning was slight different, as the crew had not to be gentle with themselves as they have to the final sacrifice by leaving their families and probably never come back, in a way that all the rest could have a tomorrow.
