Book Description

2 Oct 2003 Everyman

The definitive edition of Dylan Thomas's five published volumes of poems: 18 POEMS, TWENTY-FIVE POEMS, THE MAP OF LOVE, DEATHS AND ENTRANCES and IN COUNTRY SLEEP.

Dylan Thomas wrote passionately about life in all its moods and moments: from the first thrilling moments of childbirth to the darker moments of death and loss.

COLLECTED POEMS is introduced by the poet himself with a passionate seashore 'Prologue', in which the self-styled Noah of poetry builds his ark against ruin. This edition includes his last, unfinished poem 'Elegy', and the opening of 'In Country Heaven' - an ambitious project conceived after the dropping of the atom bomb.

About the Author

Dylan Thomas was born in Swansea on 27 October 1914, the son of a senior English master. On leaving school he worked on the South Wales Evening Post before embarking on his literary career in London. Not only a poet, he wrote short stories, film scripts, features and radio plays, the most famous being Under Milk Wood. On 9 November 1953, shortly after his thirty-ninth birthday, he collapsed and died in New York city. He is buried in Laugharne, Carmarthenshire, which had become his main home since 1949. In 1982 a memorial stone to commemorate him was unveiled in 'Poet's Corner' in Westminster Abbey.

5.0 out of 5 stars The definitive Thomas 16 Mar 2010
Format:Paperback
The Collected Poems 1934-1953 includes the five previously published volumes of Thomas's work: 18 Poems, Twenty five Poems, The Map of Love, Deaths and Entrances and In Country Sleep.
The greatest Welsh bard of the 20th century, who's genius was largely set down in his teenage years, is herein contained. So dear reader, hold hard these ancient minutes, and treat yourself to Dylan's visions, framed in Celtic pentameter, when only the moon rages.

5.0 out of 5 stars Genius! 22 Jan 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I think that Dylan Thomas' poetry is very underestimated. He was not just a metaphysical poet but also a mystic. This volume contains all the volumes of poetry he wrote. The notes are very neat and helpful.

It's worth having all the work, and see the classics in context. The notes at the back are a goldmine.

4.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful edition of the complete poems 31 May 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The poems are well presented, and there is a lengthy background note (at the back of the book) explaining the meanings and background to most of the poems. This was very useful.
It is just a shame that there was no room for Under Milk Wood.

5.0 out of 5 stars Llareggub here we come 26 May 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Dylan Thomas is a superb poet. We read so much about his drinking that some people are put off. He was first and foremost a poet who deserves to be read and read till the spine drops off the book. Do not expect anything "easy" and so do not go gentle into that good night, but absorb, absorb.
