Dylan Thomas reads his own prose and poetry in this unique collection from the archives.

 

Dylan Thomas is widely regarded as one of the 20th Century's most influential lyrical poets, his acclaim due in part to the idiosyncratic and surreal introspection which was his hallmark. Here Paul Ferris , biographer of both Dylan Thomas and his wife Caitlin, and editor of the poet's published letters, introduces a collection of fascinating archive material.

Primarily a poet, Thomas also published scripts and short stories. He publicly performed many of his works and took part in radio broadcasts. The rolling vigour of his voice, with its melodic subtlety and the almost hypnotic power of incantation, brought him almost as much fame as his poems.

The poems read include The Hand that Signed the Paper' , 'After the Funeral' and 'Poem In October' , whilst other material includes an extract from Under Milk Wood, featuring a young Richard Burton, its forerunner Quite Early One Morning , and Return Journey to Swansea , in which Thomas recalls the landscape of his youth.

Have you always loved reading but sometimes find it hard to find the time? There’s nothing quite like curling up with a good book but many of us can’t do that as much as we’d like. We sacrifice this special time because we have so many other things to do each day. It’s a common problem and it’s the reason why people on average are not reading as much as they once did. Audio books bring the story to life just as the storytellers of the past did. They allow you to experience the book in a whole new way; in the way the writer felt and heard it in their head. You can feel the emotion when you allow audio books to let the story come to life.
