The first part of the paper considers the use of metaphor in the poem "The Flower" by Dylan Thomas. The second part of the paper considers Antigone's status as a tragic heroine and her culpability in Sophocles' "Antigone."
From the Paper:"In the poem "The Force That Through the Green Fuse Drives the Flower," Dylan Thomas utilizes a clever metaphor to make a powerful commentary on the endless cycle of life and death. Thomas achieves this by drawing a parallel between the life of man and nature itself as he implies that the same life force that drives man forward is the same one that inhabits nature, including the flower mentioned in the poem's opening line."
