The essential Dylan Thomas : including Under milk wood by Dylan Thomas( )

14 editions published between 2005 and 2011 in English and held by 247 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This varied, well-chosen selection brings into one set the best of Dylan Thomas. Here is the legendary recording of Under Milk Wood, with Richard Burton and Richard Bebb as narrators; but here also are two radio productions he wrote before that great classic, and though interesting in their own right, they show how Under Milk Wood grew gradually in his imagination
The general prologue & the physician's tale by Geoffrey Chaucer( Recording )

12 editions published between 2006 and 2011 in 3 languages and held by 194 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Canterbury Tales are widely read and studied. The Middle English in which they were first written differs sufficiently from modern English, in vocabulary and usage, that most of us require a contemporary translation. On this recording the "General prologue" and "The physician's tale" are read in Middle English by Richard Bebb, under the direction of a leading Chaucerian scholar, Professor Derek Brewer. It is an authoritative performance that brilliantly evokes the fourteenth-century world, both for the general reader and the student alike. This is followed by a witty modern verse translation, and provides a fascinating contrast with the original

Under milk wood by Dylan Thomas( Recording )

3 editions published between 2008 and 2012 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Dylan Thomas worked on Under Milk Wood for eight years before he finally delivered the draft to the BBC in September 1953. Unfortunately, he was to die two months later and so never heard the first adaptation of his work. This was broadcast by the BBC in January 1954, with Richard Burton being assigned the role of First Voice. It is this recording that has become the benchmark against which all other versions of the play are considered."--Insert
