Do not go gentle into that good night. Dylan Marlais Thomas was born on October 27, 1914, in Swansea, South Wales.
His father was an English Literature professor at the local grammar school and would often recite Shakespeare to Thomas before he could read. He loved the sounds of nursery rhymes, foreshadowing his love for the rhythmic ballads of Gerard Manley Hopkins, W. B. Yeats, and Edgar Allan Poe. Although both of his parents spoke fluent Welsh, Thomas and his older sister never learned the language, and Thomas wrote exclusively in English. Thomas was a neurotic, sickly child who shied away from school and preferred reading on his own. By December of 1932, he left his job at the Post and decided to concentrate on his poetry full-time.
In 1934, when Thomas was twenty, he moved to London, won the Poet’s Corner book prize, and published his first book, 18 Poems (The Fortune press), to great acclaim.

URL creation script. The 10 Best Musician Biopics. As much as we love music, it always makes the songs a little more interesting to know about the lives that inspired them.
When musicians are the subject of a biopic, as they often are, two of our favorite art forms come together: music and dramatic film. Biopics often require some of the most demanding performances from their actors due to the notoriety of their subjects. M. Wall Street 2 trailer. When people think of movies that sum up a decade - or not just that: an attitude and a fixed point in time where capitalism was not only aspirational but hotter than a pair of polyester pants with in-built hot water bottle patches - they turn to Wall Street.

Massive dehumanization, totalitarian government, rampant disease, post-apocalyptic terrains, cyber-genetic technologies, societal chaos and widespread urban violence are some of the common themes in dystopian films which bravely examine the ominous shadow cast by future.
A dystopia is a fictional society that is the antithesis or complete opposite of a utopia, an ideal world with a perfect social, political and technological infrastructure. A world without chaos, strife or hunger. A world where the individual potential and freedom is celebrated and brought to the forefront.
