Summary

Summary

Covering the whole range of Dylan Thomas's writing--both poetry and prose--Walford Davies's "Dylan Thomas "is an accessible appraisal of the work and achievement of this major and dynamic poet. Davies analyzes Thomas and his work in light of his Welsh background, while simultaneously illustrating Thomas's wide knowledge of and impact on the long and varied tradition of poetry in English. In that connection, Davies delineates and delimits Thomas's relationship to surrealism, compares and contrasts his work with that of other poets of the 1930s and '40s, and shows how the power of his writing survives to this day, long after his untimely death in 1953. This new edition offers an updated bibliography and Davies's own commentary on the previous edition.
