Description
Dylan Thomas expanded our sense of what the English language can do. He was the creator of one of the most distinctive and exciting of literary styles – sensuous, playful, rhythmically forceful yet subtly musical, and full of memorable lines. This is the definitive edition of his five published volumes of poems: 18 Poems, Twenty-Five Poems, The Map of Love, Deaths and EntrancesandIn Country Sleep. It is introduced by the poet himself with a seashore ‘Prologue’, in which the self-styled Noah of poetry builds his ark against ruin. Also included is his last, unfinished poem ‘Elegy’, and the opening of ‘In Country Heaven’ – an ambitious project conceived after the dropping of the atom bomb.
