The collected letters by Dylan Thomas ( Book )
12 editions published between 1985 and 2000 in English and held by 790 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Dylan Thomas's letters, which span a life from Welsh childhood to the last fatal days in New York, are as remarkable for their poetry, style and vision as they are for their deviousness, jokes and self-caricatures. The schoolboy editor becomes the passionate show-off; the young would-be lecher turns into the husband of Caitlin Macnamara; the adolescent whose notebooks were full of poems 'bursting with black and green rhythms, like a very young policeman exploding', is transmuted into the harassed freelance writer, rarely at peace with himself." "More than a hundred new letters have been added since Paul Ferris edited the first edition of the Collected Letters in 1985. Thomas's adolescence in Swansea and his love affair with Caitlin are seen in sharper focus. He has important things to say about poetry and unkind things to say about other poets - 'Spender should be kicked... Day-Lewis hissed in public and have his balls beaten with a toffee hammer."--BOOK JACKET
Dr. Freud, a life by Paul Ferris ( Book )
3 editions published between 1997 and 1999 in English and held by 584 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Ferris's life of Freud reveals the full scope of the doctor's strength and fallibility. He writes of Freud's obsessive interest in sexual frustration, noting the context of Freud's own passionless marriage. He recounts the young physician's advocacy of cocaine as a miracle drug, without neglecting his regret at learning of its sorrowful consequences. He presents the many aspects of this complex soul: the charismatic personality, the persistent superstitions and neuroses, the vindictive temper and willful self-confidence, and finally, the quiet strength of a man enduring chronic pain and disfigurement from the cancer that eventually killed him
