About this title

Synopsis:

Because Dylan Thomas often wrote as much for the sound of his poetry as for its meaning, he was extraordinarily well-suited to the task of interpreting his own works on audio, the more so for his unforgettably rich voice and dramatic style. These recordings are the preservation of a unique literary resource, a fascinating introduction to the complete experience of Dylan Thomas' manipulation of language. The poem in this collection are those that he most often chose for his famous public readings and can therefore be considered the ones Dylan Thomas himself wanted us to hear.

About the Author:

Dylan Thomas, born in 1914, began his career as a journalist in his native Swansea, Wales. He then moved to London where he worked in broadcasting and wrote film scripts, prose and drama to earn enough money to enable him to write what he most wanted to—poetry.

He lived colorfully, even recklessly, until his untimely death in New York City in 1953. One of the 20th century’s most treasured writers, Dylan Thomas was a master craftsman of poetic complexity and richly obscure imagery. Thomas’s genius is made clear in this landmark recording through the everlasting gift he has given the word—his voice.
