Dylan Marlais Thomas (October 27, 1914 – November 9, 1953)

Thomas came to be appreciated as a popular poet during his lifetime, though
he found earning a living as a writer difficult. He began augmenting his income
with reading tours and radio broadcasts.

At the post-mortem, the pathologist found three causes of death – pneumonia,
brain swelling and a fatty liver. Despite his heavy drinking his liver showed no
sign of cirrhosis. He was only 39.
