Literary Portraits – Dylan Thomas

November 26, 2013

I don’t imagine I need to say anything about Dylan Thomas. Probably the most famous Welsh poet of all time.

Though lovers be lost love shall not;
And death shall have no dominion.
‘And death shall have no dominion’

After the first death, there is no other.
‘A refusal to mourn the death, by fire, of a child in London.’

Do not go gentle into that good night.
‘Do not go gentle into that good night’

Oh, isn’t life a terrible thing, thank God?
Polly Garter in Under Milk Wood (1954)

We are not wholly bad or good
Who live our lives under Milk Wood,
And Thou, I know, wilt be the first
To see our best side, not our worst.
Revd. Eli Jenkins in Under Milk Wood (1954)
