Description

Like Shakespeare and Joyce before him, Dylan Thomas expanded our sense of what the English language can do. Rhythmically forceful yet subtly musical and full of memorable lines, his poems are anthology favourites; his 'play for voices' Under Milk Wood a modern classic. Much-loved by The Beatles and Bob Dylan, he is a cultural icon and continues to inspire artists today. This new edition, released to commemorate the centenary of Thomas's birth, collects all of his poems together for the first time in a single volume. With recently discovered material and accessible critique from Dylan Thomas expert John Goodby, it looks at Thomas's body of work in a fresh light, taking us to the beating heart of his poetry.

Author Biography

Dylan Thomas was born in Swansea on 27 October 1914. 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. In 1982 a memorial stone to commemorate him was unveiled in 'Poet's Corner' in Westminster Abbey. www.discoverdylanthomas.com John Goodby is a Swansea-based scholar who has written extensive papers on Dylan Thomas as well as giving lecture tours, and appearing on BBC radio.
