Dylan Thomas

Dylan Marlais Thomas (1914–53) was a Welsh writer, best known for his 1954 play set in the fictional Welsh town of Llareggub, Under Milk Wood, and for his poetry – in particular ‘Do Not Go Gentle into that Good Night’ and ‘And Death Shall Have No Dominion’. As well as finding fame in his lifetime for his poetry, he worked as a journalist and broadcaster for the BBC, and travelled frequently, giving readings.
