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 widely popular in his lifetime and remained so after his
premature death at the age of 39 in New York City. By then, he had acquired a reputation, which he
encouraged, as a "roistering, drunken and doomed poet".
