Dylan Thomas (1914-53)

Dylan Thomas (1914-1953) var walisiskur yrkjari. Hann spýtti ikki í glasið, stakkalin, og tí gjørdist løtan á foldum heldur stokkut, men tað, sum hann legði eftir seg vóru yrkingar av so mikið sjáldsomum slag, at tær eru galdandi um allar ævir.

Kendast er helst yrkingin “Do not go gentle into that good night”. Yrkingin er ein sokallað viallanella. Hetta er franskt yrkingasnið, ið kom inn í enskar bókmentir um 9. øld. Týðum sungu trubadurar villanellur. Sniðið festið ikki rættiliga í Fraklandi, meðan onglendingar tóku hetta til sín.

Villanellan er fast snið. Hon er 19 reglur. Endarímini eru soleiðis: A1 b A2 / a b A1 / a b A2 / a b A1 / a b A2 / a b A1 A2.

Vit prenta her “Do not go gentle in to that good night”. Men fyrst skal Dylan Thomas sjálvur lesa hana.

Og so yrkingin.

Do not 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.

Tað segðist, at walisiski sjónleikarin, Richard Burton, varð jarðaður við samlaðu yrkingunum eftir Dylan Thomas á bringuni, undir sínum foldaðu hondum.
