The World of Dylan Thomas

The World of Dylan Thomas

by Peter Stevenson




Thomas's life and famous works are set against the Welsh landscape he inhabited

Although writing predominantly in the English language, Dylan Thomas is regarded as many as Wales’ finest poet. He became popular in his lifetime and remained so after his premature death. In his later life he acquired a reputation, which he encouraged, as a "roistering, drunken and doomed poet." Born in Swansea in 1914, Dylan also lived in London and often toured America. It was on one of his speaking tours that he collapsed in the White Horse Tavern, in Greenwich Village, New York. He later died on November 9, 1953, in the St. Vincent's Hospital. This new biography explores Dylan the man, his poetry, and his life.
