Wife of Poet Great Dylan Thomas, Author
Caitlin Thomas, born MacNamara (December 8, 1913 - July 31, 1994) was the wife of Welsh poet and writer Dylan Thomas. She authored the book Leftover Life to Kill. MacNamara was born in Hammersmith, London, to Francis and Yvonne MacNamara. At 16 entered a dancing school. She eventually settled in Ireland, in County Clare, then Paris. MacNarama met Thomas in a bar in London in 1936, and the pair were married on 11 July 1937 in Penzance, Cornwall. The couple had three children. After Thomas` death in 1953, Caitlin moved to Italy. In 1957 she met Giuseppe Fazio, with whom she later had one child. She blamed Thomas` sudden death on medical malpractice. Some support for this theory is to be found in the article "Dylan Thomas: Death of a Poet" on the BBC website. By her own account, after the death of Thomas she experienced severe emotional and psychological distress, even being institutionalized at one point. She began to attend Alcoholics Anonymous in 1973, aged 60.
