From the Paper:

"This research examines the life and work of the Welsh poet Dylan Thomas (1914-1953). The research will set forth the historical and cultural context in which Thomas's poetic voice emerged and then discuss ways in which Thomas's patterns of behavior in his private life influenced and to some extent retarded the course of his richly promising professional work.

To discuss the life and career of Thomas is almost inevit.ably to include the observation that he died in what might have been the prime of his professional and personal life. Dylan Thomas's poetic gifts flourished despite a persistent pattern of self-destructive behavior that did the opposite of cherish and nurture them. The result was that his inability to break the destructive cycles in his life truncated what many critics take to be a rich and innovative literary voice."
