A Dylan Thomas Treasury Summary


A Dylan Thomas Treasury: Poems, Stories and Broadcasts. Selected by Walford Davies by Dylan Thomas

An exclusive and detailed collection of Dylan Thomas' poems, stories and broadcasts, featuring a bold new livery in celebration of the Dylan Thomas centenary. A must-have for all literature lovers.

This selection provides the perfect introduction to Dylan Thomas' work, from poems and broadcasts to his short stories. It highlights his myriad talents, as well as the fluctuating moods and passions that inform his work.

Discovered at the age of 19 through a poetry competition in a London newspaper, Dylan Thomas became the object of immediate acclaim and criticism for his adventurous language and resonant verse. Thomas' poetry and prose embrace touching childhood reminiscence and a spiritual yearning from which he emerges, not as the loud bohemian of the personal legend, but as the careful and reflective artist of the poems, stories and broadcasts themselves.

About Dylan Thomas


Dylan Thomas, born in Swansea in 1914, is perhaps Wales' best-known writer, and celebrations throughout 2014 will mark the centenary of his birth. He is widely considered to be one of the major poets of the 20th century, and many of his greatest poems, such as 'Fern Hill' and 'Do not go gentle into that good night' remain among the nation's favourites. As well as poetry, Dylan Thomas wrote numerous short stories and scripts for film and radio - none more popular than his radio play UNDER MILK WOOD, which is considered by many to be his masterpiece. He led a fascinating and tempestuous life, permeated by love affairs and reckless bouts of drinking, which led him to claim that he had beast, angel and madman within him. There have been several film adaptations of his fascinating life, which ended all too soon in 1953 when he collapsed and died in New York shortly after his 39th birthday. A memorial stone commemorating his life and work was unveiled in Poets' Corner in Westminster Abbey in 1982.
