About the Author

The Welsh poet Dylan Thomas (1914-1953) was one of the greatest writers of the twentieth century. His work, noted for its lush metaphors, musicality, and playfulness within traditional forms, was largely responsible for modernizing poetic verse.
John Goodby, scholar, poet, and translator, is Senior Lecturer at the University of Swansea and author of The Poetry of Dylan Thomas: Under the Spelling Wall, Illenium, and A True Prize.

Reviews

Thomas meant much to me and my generation, he is still singing in his chains like the sea--a force driving the flowers.--Seamus Heaney
As I wrote fifty years ago, there is no one like Dylan Thomas in poetry today.--Lawrence Ferlinghetti
A beautiful addition to any library. One of the 20th century's greatest poets.--Brazos Bookstore
Dylan Thomas blistered and jolted readers thanks to an infatuation with words that became voracious love. It is impossible to overstate the invigorating influence of his work and the tragedy of his early death. John Goodby, a Thomas scholar at the University of Swansea, provides a nimble introduction to the poet and the man.-- (12/08/2017)
