N Sumathi, Dr. P Suresh

Dylan Thomas has a deep concern about the problems of life. Death, birth, rebirth or resurrection, according to him, is a part of natural cycle. His poems reflect man’s fundamental problems in life. The struggle in the process of life, death owes for the future rebirth. Death energizes the soul after physical decay. He brings in the notion of physical death not to be mourned but to be celebration. These themes are deeply rooted in his religious and traditional influences. Biblical – crucifixion, prayers, sermons and pastors are intertwined with metaphysical imagery which made critics to question his religious beliefs. The objective of this paper is to analyse his attitude towards death according to his poems and critically view his convictions on resurrection, soul’s unity with nature to be immortal and perfect submission to the power of nature.
