About the Author

Dylan Thomas was among the most popular cultural figures of the 20th century for the poems Do not go gentle into that good night and And death shall have no dominion; the "play for voices" Under Milk Wood; and stories and radio broadcasts such as Portrait of the Artist as a Young Dogand, especially, A Child's Christmas in Wales.

John Goodby is a critic, poet, translator, and the director of the Dylan Thomas Research Project at Swansea University.


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)
