Beginning in February 1952, Dylan Thomas made a series of memorable and historic recordings for a new record label called Caedmon. In fact, Dylan Thomas was the first to record for this new label, started by two 22–year–old women, Marianne Roney and Barbara Cohen. Little did they know that in addition to capturing a part of history they also launched an industry of spoken–word recording.
This collection not only contains the incredible Caedmon recording sessions, but also recordings from the BBC, CBC, and other archival material Caedmon originally published in the 1950s and 1960s.

A classic New Directions book revised for the 21st Century.
Dylan Thomas (1914-1953) prepared this volume in 1952―the author's choice of the ninety poems he felt would best represent his work up to that time―and it was published by New Directions in 1953 as The Collected Poems of Dylan Thomas
, shortly after his death. This book was then and remained, for all practical purposes, Thomas's "collected" poems and in that sense complete. However, with the 1971 publication of the 192 poems in The Poems of Dylan Thomas
(also now available in a revised edition), Thomas's Collected Poems
has naturally e...

This is the definitive edition of Dylan Thomas's poetry, containing all of the poems which he himself wished to perserve. The poet made his selection in 1952, the year before his death, and wrote especially for it the beautiful "Author's Prologue," addressed to "my readers, the strangers."
In 1956, the collection was augmented by the addition of the poem "Elegy," for which sixty pages of manuscript lines were found in Thomas's papers after his death, and which was edited by his friend, the poet Vernon Watkins. Those lines were written in memory of the poet's father, but they speak to us also,...
Published in anticipation of the centenary of the poet's birth, The Poetry of Dylan Thomas is the first study of poet to show how his work may be read in terms of contemporary critical concerns, using theories of modernism, the body, gender, the carnivalesque, language, hybridity and the pastoral in order to view it in an original light. Moreover, in presenting a Dylan Thomas who has real significance for twenty-first century readers, it shows that such a reappraisal also requires us to re-think some of the ways in which all post-Waste Land British poetry has been read in the last few decades.
