9780007179459: Dylan Thomas Reading His Poetry: Complete & Unabridged

A unique recording with Dylan Thomas reading his own work, as he meant it to be read.

Because Dylan Thomas often wrote as much for the sound of his poetry as for its meaning, he was extraordinarily well-suited to the task of interpreting his own works on audio, the more so for his unforgettably rich, magical voice and dramatic style.

This recording is the preservation of a unique literary resource, a fascinating introduction to the complete experience of Dylan Thomas’ manipulation of language. The poems in this collection are those that he most often chose for his famous public readings and can therefore be considered the ones Dylan Thomas himself wanted us to know.

Includes such favourites as Do Not Go Gentle Into That Good Night, Fern Hill, And Death Shall Have no Dominion plus many more.

About the Author:

Dylan Thomas began his career as a journalist in his native village of Swansea, Wales. He then moved to London where he worked in broadcasting and wrote film scripts, prose and drama to earn enough money to enable him to write what he most wanted to – poetry. He lived with his wife and three children until his untimely death in New York in 1953.
