My Favourite 5 Poets - #4

Dylan Thomas, Welsh, 20th century.

The wild Taff who drank himself to death at a young age.

Do not go gentle into that good night is one poem become part of popular folklore. Another is his play for voices Under Milkwood.

A wonderful writer of highly original lyrics.

"Love the words, love the words", he once beseeched the players rehearsing Under Milkwood.

I love the words, and I love his words.
