The poet herself is the first speaker. The second speaker is the actor Morgan Freeman.
Dylan Thomas' poem And Death Shall Have no Dominion was used throughout the film Solaris by Director Steven Soderbergh. The movie is highly recommended. The soundtrack for the movie by Cliff Martinez is also highly recommended. Listen here.
Thomas' poem is noted for its metaphysical sentiment that death shall never triumph over life or love. Read the poem in its entirety here.
