The original and classic The Collected Poems of Dylan Thomas is available once again, now with a brilliant new preface by Paul Muldoon.

The Collected Poems of Dylan Thomas contains poems that Thomas personally decided best represented his work. A year before its publication Thomas died from swelling of the brain triggered by excessive drinking. (A piece of New Directions history: it was our founder James Laughlin who identified Thomas’ body at the morgue of St. Vincent’s Hospital.)
Since its initial publication in 1953, this book has become the definitive edition of the poet’s work. Thomas wrot...

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.

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,...
