Book Description University of Wales Press, 1990. Paperback. Condition: Used: Good. Condition good, ref ZKVQ This is a short critical study analysing the achievement of Dylan Thomas against its Welsh cultural background, and at the same time giving an overview of his career and impact as one of the most original and attractive of twentieth-century poets internationally. The book was originally published in a limited edition in the Writers of Wales series and has now been revised. Review Walford Davies's sympathetic introduction to the character and writing of Dylan Thomas, one of the great twentieth-century poets, is illuminating for new or experienced readers. His appraisal and close readings are warmly personal, rooted in Welsh literary and social culture. - Prof. Barbara Hardy, Professor of English Literature Emeritus, University of London Walford Davies displays commendable but misplaced modesty in calling this extensively revised centenary edition of his celebrated study of Dylan Thomas an 'essay'. It is, rather, a sustained, even ecstatic meditation on the meaning of the life and the work of one of the great English language writers of the twentieth century. The book performs a miracle of compression in distilling a lifetime's learning and reflection into manageable space and offering elegant readings not only of Thomas's key writings in poetry, fiction and broadcast media but of his biographical and cultural contexts. The poet's debt to the Welsh-speaking, Non-Conformist milieu of his immediate ancestry is sensitively illuminated, and his place in the British poetry of his time and in the long history of verse in English from Chaucer to Heaney delineated with formidable skill and erudition. The volume is in the best sense a work of advocacy - and one as dapper, witty and unfanatical as it is impassioned. - Prof. Patrick Crotty, University of Aberdeen About the Author Professor Walford Davies is a leading authority on Dylan Thomas. He is the author of Dylan Thomas (Open University Press), co-editor with Ralph Maud of the definitive editions of Thomas's Collected Poems 1934 - 1953 and Under Milk Wood (Dent), and editor of Selected Poems and Under Milk Wood for Penguin.
