Black and white of Welsh poet and writer Dylan Thomas.

Dylan Thomas

(1914 - 1953)

Dylan Thomas began working for a newspaper at the age of sixteen in 1931, and two years later he achieved his first major poetical success with “And Death Shall Have No Dominion.” Between 1930 and 1934, he composed in one form or another around half of the ninety poems he would publish in his lifetime. On a U.S. speaking tour in 1952, Thomas said that people attended to see “a little fat man come to make a fool of himself.”
