Dylan Marlais Thomas (27 October 1914 – 9 November 1953) was a Welsh poet and writer whose works include the poems "Do not go gentle into that good night" and "And death shall have no dominion", the "play for voices", Under Milk Wood, and stories and radio broadcasts such as A Child's Christmas in Wales and Portrait of the Artist as a Young Dog. He became popular in his lifetime and remained so after his premature death in New York. In his later life he acquired a reputation, which he encouraged, as a "roistering, drunken and doomed poet".

    Beautifully vivid language with a clear, true voice. His poems can sometimes seem opaque, but he insisted that he wrote "literally". And when you "get it", whether a line, or an entire poem, it is a real treat. His insight is penetrating.
