“Do Not Go Gentle into That Good-Night”

10 Dec

I’m currently reading the young adult novel Matched by Ally Condie. It’s been compared to The Hunger Games, but  I see more similarity in
it to Lois Lowry’s The Giver. After a couple pages, I began to think I’d like to see a novel set in this world but from a non-white and a non-heterosexual perspective. Outcasts are so intriguing.

Here are links to a couple of poems that are mentioned in Matched:

“Do Not Go Gentle into that Good Night” by Dylan Thomas  http://www.poets.org/viewmedia.php/prmMID/15377
