Dylan Thomas by Walford Davies( )

40 editions published between 1972 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,853 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Covering the whole range of Dylan Thomas's writing, both poetry and prose, this is an accessible appraisal of the work and achievement of a major and dynamic poet. It interrelates the man and his national-cultural background by defining in detail the Welshness of his poetic temperament and critical attitudes, as both man and poet. It also illustrates Thomas's wide knowledge of and impact on the long and varied tradition of poetry in English. In that connection, the study delineates and delimits Thomas's relationship to Surrealism, compares and contrasts his work with that of other poets of the 1930s and 1940s, and shows how its power today survives his death at an early age in 1953. A main aspect of the book is its close textual analyses, separating the achievement of the work from the 'legend'.--Cover

Under Milk Wood : a play for voices by Dylan Thomas( Book )

26 editions published between 1995 and 2014 in English and held by 242 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1951, two years before his death, Dylan Thomas wrote of his plan to complete a radio play, 'an impression for voices, an entertainment out of the darkness, of the town I live in, and to write it simply and warmly and comically with lots of movement and varieties of moods, so that, at many levels ... you come to know the town as an inhabitant of it'. The work was 'Under Milk Wood' - an orchestration of voices, sights and sounds that conjure up the dreams and waking hours of an imagined Welsh seaside village within the cycle of one day. Includes an introduction, notes, selected criticism and chronology of Thomas's life and times

A Dylan Thomas treasury : poems, stories and broadcasts by Dylan Thomas( Book )

11 editions published between 1988 and 2014 in English and held by 155 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

'Discovered' at the age of 19 through a poetry competitition in a London newspaper, Dylan Thomas became the object of immediate acclaim and criticism for his adventurous language and resonant verse. His famously reckless lifestyle belied his deep seriousness - manifest in his imaginative fascination with youth and his continual marvelling at the mysteries of life and death. Along with startling images of pain and violence, Thomas's 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 powms, stories and broadcasts themselves. 'At poor peace I sing/To you strangers.' [back cover]
