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.

Sir Richard Francis Burton was the first totranslate the "Kama Sutra" into English. He was known for his travels and explorations within Africa and Asia and for his knowledge of languages and cultures.

Review:

The voice of Dylan Thomas is so luscious that it sparked the audiobook business, ensnaring two young women with a tape recorder, who set out in the early '50s to record major authors reading their own works, one of whom was Dylan Thomas. They founded Caedmon Records in 1952, the first audiobook publishing company. So when I saw that the first actor in UNDER MILKWOOD was not Dylan Thomas, I groaned. Who better?A" I asked. The answer: Richard Burton. This 1954 radio drama is now more artifact than revelation. But still a pleasure. Babies bawl, doors slam, and cows are recorded mooing. We're back in Wales by the sloeblack, slow, black, crow black, fishboat-bobbing sea.A" Two other programs are narrated by-you guessed it-Dylan Thomas. He's gone into that good night, but still can be heard out there in the dark, raging. - Maine Portland, Audio File
