Dylan Thomas


(1914 - 1953)

Dylan Thomas

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”.


A Child’s Christmas in Wales (1978)

This prose poem ranks in the best poetry of the twentieth century. It should be heard first as read by the author, then memorized with the aid of this book.
