In the beginning of the play, Williams shows Amanda as being bitter about the fathers abandonment when she says 'I could have been Mrs. Duncan J. Fitzhugh, mind you! But-I picked your father!' this also shows that Amanda's character is stuck in the past and she regrets choosing the father in the first place because she believes that she could have done better. She also doesn't seem to want to talk about Mr Wingfield much because every reference she does make to him is punctuated by an exclamation mark - 'One thing your father had plenty of - was charm!'

It pained Dylan Thomas to see his father so peaceful, because he had been very sarcastic and angry his whole life. His ill father was just a shadow of his former self. In the poem, he urges his father to “not go gentle into that good night”. “That good night” represents death and the end of his pain. He knows that his father is going to a better place, but he doesn’t want him to fade peacefully.
