Dylan Thomas was born in Swansea, Wales, on October 27, 1914. After grammar school

Dylan Thomas was born in Swansea, Wales, on October 27, 1914. After grammar school he moved to London where, in 1934, his first book of poetry, Eighteen Poems, was published. At this early age, he revealed unusual power in the use of poetic diction and imagery; the volume won him immediate critical acclaim. Thematically, these poems and virtually all that followed seem obscure because they contain elements of surrealism and personal fantasy. But the freshness and vitality of Thomas's language draw the reader into the poems and reveal the universality of the experiences with which they are concerned. This introspective tendency is less apparent in Deaths and Entrances (1946) and In Country Sleep (1951), which are generally regarded as containing his finest writing. Thomas's other works include Twenty-five Poems (1936) and The Map of Love (1939), containing both poetry and prose. A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Dog (1940) is a group of autobiographical sketches, and Adventures in the Skin Trade (published posthumously, 1954) contains an unfinished novel and other prose pieces. During World War II (1939-1945) Thomas wrote scripts for documentary motion pictures

Leaf veins of the common ivy Featured 26 Jul 2005 Print

Leaf veins of the common ivy

Scanning electron micrograph, tinted green, of a leaf skeleton of the common ivy, Hedera helix. The skeleton is left after the soft tissue (mesophyll) has rotted away, & consists of the vascular tissue (veins) of the plant: the xylem, which carries water & minerals from the roots, & the phloem, which takes sugar from the leaves to the rest of the plant. The xylem cells are impregnated with lignin, a polymer resistant to decay & hence surv- iving to form the skeleton. In dicotyledonous plants (with two seed- leaves) the vascular system is a network of increasingly small veins, as here. Magnification: X 4 (35mm). Original is BW print B745/032
