It is a strong invocation for us to live boldly and to fight. It implores us to not just “go gentle into that good night,” but to rage against it. Even at the end of life, when “grave men” are near death, the poem instructs us to burn with life. The poem’s meaning is life-affirming.
The poet sends a strong message to all its readers asking the people to cling to the edge of the mortal world and no matter how worthless and unproductive this fight may seem against such an inevitable reality, one cannot help but command the ferocity and fierceness of the poet who has a strong will to live.
