Dylan Marlais Thomas was a Welsh poet and writer whose works include the poems, “Do not go gentle into that good night”, “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 popular after his death; partly due to his larger than life character, and his reputation for drinking to excess.
