Summary
"Dylan Thomas: A Literary Life offers an accurate and unsensationalized account of the poet's life in the context of British and American literary culture in the first half of the twentieth century, along with a critical reading of a selection of characteristic works in the many different genres in which Dylan Thomas worked, from the dense and rhetorically powerful lyrics which established his reputation through his stories and radio and film scripts to the triumphant 'play for voices', Under Milk Wood. This study is designed to close what has been called 'the yawning gap' between Thomas's popular and critical reputations, and is a major contribution to the revival and revision of the poet's work and reputation"--
