Dylan the Bard: A Life of Dylan Thomas by Andrew Sinclair

Fifty years after his death many consider Dylan Thomas to have been the best lyric poet of his age. Andrew Sinclair in this book, explains how Thomas attracted a new mass audience and discusses the influences on his work that stemmed from the divisions and tensions of the poet's Welsh heritage. He attempts to capture the tragic and exuberant story of Thomas's personal life, his vision of Wales and the writing of his masterpeice "Under Milk Wood", the brawling and boozing in Fitzrovia during the 1930s and 40s and the last American tour of the 50s, that ended with his death.

Dylan the Bard Reviews


'Mr Sinclair writes beautifully and analyses the poet's development with clarity and humour.' Keith Baxter, Daily Telegraph 'Sinclair shares with his subject a lively, paranomastic prose style, and his account of an instinctively respectable psyche afflicted with the frightening gift of poetry makes fascinating and most enjoyable reading.' Sean MacMahon, Irish Independent
