Poetry, Poetry by individual poets, Fiction

An exclusive and detailed collection of Dylan Thomas' poems, stories and broadcasts, featuring a bold new livery in celebration of the Dylan Thomas centenary. A must-have for all literature lovers.

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.

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 and A CHILD'S CHRISTMAS IN WALES. On 9 November 1953, shortly after his thirty-ninth birthday, Dylan Thomas 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.
