The Love Letters of Dylan Thomas Summary

The Love Letters of Dylan Thomas by Dylan Thomas

Dylan Thomas's letters to the many women in his life are among the most beautiful and lyrical he wrote. Provoked mostly by separations, they are cajoling, apologetic, uninhibited, tactical and loving. This collection includes letters to Pamela, his first love, to Caitlin, his equally flamboyant wife, and to later loves like Elizabeth Reitel, the woman who was with him on the night he died in New York. Like most great letter writers, Thomas had the gift of writing as if his correspondent stood in front of him. He could also use his letters to accomplish a number of tasks - to secure forgiveness, to make excuses, to amuse or deflect, to give an impression of confidence and ease. Sensual and earthy, like so much of his poetry, they were all designed to secure Thomas's place in his lover's heart and memory - the purpose of all true love letters.

About Dylan Thomas

Dylan Thomas was born in Swansea in 1914. He began to write poetry while still at school, his first volume appearing in 1934. He maried Caitlin Macnamara in 1937, finally settling with her in Laugharne in Wales. He died in New York at the age of 39. One of the works he had been reading from on that fateful night was to become perhaps his most famous - Under Milk Wood.
