Meet the Author

The reputation of Welsh poet Dylan Thomas (1914-1953) as one of the greatest poets of the twentieth century has not waned in the fifty years since his death. His work, noted for its lush metaphors, musicality, and playfulness within traditional forms, was largely responsible for modernizing poetic verse. Thomas also wrote captivating short stories, a novella, several screenplays and radio plays, as well as his delightful stage play, Under Milk Wood—all infused with his passion for the English language and his enduring love of Wales.

A great addition to the poetry of Dylan Thomas. What a dynmic writer!

Dylan Thomas' play Under Milk Wood is the reflection of a day in a small sea town, narrated by two anonymous voices and a blind, old sea captain. Thomas' use of imagery is unquestionably the best I have ever read.
