Book Description

5 April 2001

This selection provides the perfect introduction to Dylan Thomas' work, from poems and broadcasts to his short stories. It highlights his myriad talents, as well as the fluctuating moods and passions that inform his work.

Discovered at the age of 19 through a poetry competition in a London newspaper, Dylan Thomas became the object of immediate acclaim and criticism for his adventurous language and resonant verse. Thomas' poetry and prose embrace touching childhood reminiscence and a spiritual yearning from which he emerges, not as the loud bohemian of the personal legend, but as the careful and reflective artist of the poems, stories and broadcasts themselves.

About the Author

Dylan Thomas, born in Swansea in 1914, is perhaps Wales' best-known writer, and celebrations throughout 2014 will mark the centenary of his birth. He is widely considered to be one of the major poets of the 20th century, and many of his greatest poems, such as 'Fern Hill' and 'Do not go gentle into that good night' remain among the nation's favourites. As well as poetry, Dylan Thomas wrote numerous short stories and scripts for film and radio - none more popular than his radio play UNDER MILK WOOD, which is considered by many to be his masterpiece. He led a fascinating and tempestuous life, permeated by love affairs and reckless bouts of drinking, which led him to claim that he had beast, angel and madman within him. There have been several film adaptations of his fascinating life, which ended all too soon in 1953 when he collapsed and died in New York shortly after his 39th birthday. A memorial stone commemorating his life and work was unveiled in Poets' Corner in Westminster Abbey in 1982.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dylan Thomas - I love you! 21 Sep 2001
By Rebecca
Format:Paperback
I first read the poems of Dylan Thomas when I was at school. I was bowled over then and I am still bowled over now. This anthology contains most of my favourites from my school days, and his wonderful unimaginably long sentences are still here too. The only thing that I could say that is negative about this book is that Under Milk Wood is not included. Why, Mr Publisher, Why? I'd have paid a bit extra, really I would. Still, 4 stars I think, even without the delicious "bible black" and "snuggeries of babies". :-)
