Review: Collected Poems

User Review  - Clay - Goodreads

Review: Collected Poems

User Review  - Wendy - Goodreads

I enjoyed Dylan Thomas's Collected Poems, my favorite in this book was "In the Beginning" but I still have to say that so far William Wordsworth is still my favorite writer of poems. Read full review

About the author (1953)

Dylan Thomas was born in Swansea, Wales on 27 October 1914. In 1934 his first book of poetry, "Eighteen Poems" appeared, followed by "Twenty-five Poems" in 1936, "Deaths and Entrances" in 1946 and in 1952 his final volume, "Collected Poems". He also published many short stories, wrote filmscripts, broadcast stories and talks, did a series of lecture tours in the United States and wrote "Under Milkwood", the radio play.

During his fourth lecture tour of the United States in 1953, a few days after his 39th birthday, he collapsed in his New York hotel and died on November 9th at St. Vincent's Hospital. His body was sent back to Laugharne, Wales, where his grave is marked by a simple wooden cross.

In June 1994, his wife, Caitlin Thomas, died in Italy, where she had spent most of the years of her life after the death of Dylan Thomas. Her body is buried next to his.
