And Death Shall Have No Dominion

And death shall have no dominion.
Dead man naked they shall be one
With the man in the wind and the west moon;
When their bones are picked clean and the clean bones gone,

death shall have no dominion. No more may gulls cry at their ears Or waves break loud on the seashores; Where blew a flower may a flower no more.../// superb and excellent poetic expression
Look good.
I like very much the refrain, ' And death shall have no dominion'. Especially the first stanza about men who will rise again. Be defiant towards death, show no respect to it.
So beautifully crafted.Oh Dylan you are so missed.

Very very touching poem.........really fantastic....
Maybe understanding comes from having somebody who was close to us die. I don't know. Maybe the only way to truly understand it comes at a cost that is too high. Most of us will pay that price before we are old enough to face death. All I know is that, whenever I read this now, it makes perfect sense. And as vivid as the images that are in it might be, maybe it's one of the few ways that we can really understand that death has no cominion.

I dont get it and my english tea cher wants us to write a whoile essay on it and its just annoying as
All his other poems seem to be pretty sure of no afterlife but when I read this one, it is all about immortality. So I looked at an analysis which said he wrote this poem when he was still in school on a bet and it was based on some epistles in the Bible. So funny that you cannot know what something is about until you read a backstory. Doesn’t make any difference to me but love when makes more sense to the larger body of work. Love this poem.
