The three poems Ulysses, Stopping by the Woods, and Do Not Go Gentle into That Good Night all deal with the subjects of mortality and aging, but each approaches these topics from a different angle. While Ulysses is about a man who is at the end of his life and looking back on all that he has accomplished, Stopping by the Woods is about a man who is in the prime of his life and contemplating his own mortality. Do Not Go Gentle into That Good Night, meanwhile, is about a son urging his dying father to fight against death. These three poems inspire the readers, through the images of life, whether in old age or young, to not accept death as it is, but rather to challenge even in the last time minute.
