Dylan Thomas

Welsh, 1914-1953

Dylan Thomas is one of the most celebrated writers to come out of Wales. He began his career as a writer at the age of sixteen and published several stories and poems as a teenager. His breakthrough came when he was twenty, with the publication of “Light breaks where no sun shines.” In addition to his poetry, including the classic “Do not go gently into that good night,” Thomas wrote several radio broadcasts for the BBC, the best-remembered of which is A Child’s Christmas in Wales.
