Dylan Thomas

$ 3.99

The works of the Welsh poet Dylan Thomas are celebrated for their comic exuberance, rhapsodic lilt and endearing pathos. He led a personal life that was never far from the public eye, punctuated by notorious bouts of drinking. His enduring masterpiece, ‘Under Milk Wood’ is a seminal classic of twentieth century literature. The radio play subtly evokes the lives of the inhabitants of a small Welsh town, teeming with imaginative language, dramatic characterisation and an inimitable breadth of comic invention. The Delphi Poets Series offers readers the works of literature’s finest poets, with superior formatting. For the first time in publishing history, this volume presents Dylan Thomas’ complete works, with numerous illustrations and the usual Delphi bonus material. (Version 1)
