Almost missed this ...

... Today is Dylan Thomas's birthday: News from Cwmdonkin Drive.

Nige is largely right. Thomas was not simply a windbag, but a great one. And he does fit the popular image of "poet" - drunk and disorderly. That said, the voice can still cast a spell (though a friend once noted that you can read the telephone directory that way and it will sound like poetry). Here he is reading Do Not Go Gentle Into That God Night.
