A Personal Anthology: Unabridged edition

By Dylan Thomas, Read by Dylan Thomas

A selection of poems by various poets, including W.B Yeats, Gerard Manley Hopkins, and D.H. Lawrence. There are also readings especially devoted to John Milton’s ‘Comus’ and ‘Paradise Lost’ with Dylan Thomas as Satan.

The success that Dylan Thomas (1914-53) rapidly achieved as a poet was matched by his popularity as a reader, on the radio and on lecture tours of both his own and other poets’ work. Thomas reads poems by Vernon Watkins, W.H. Davies, Alun Lewis, Edward Thomas, Wilfred Owen, W.B. Yeats, Gerard Manley Hopkins and D.H. Lawrence.

Dylan Thomas is widely regarded as one of the Twentieth Century\'s most influential lyrical poets, and amongst the finest as such of all time. His acclaim is partly due to his hallmark of idiosyncratic and surreal introspection, partly by his startling imagery that is brilliant and inspirational. Although Thomas was primarily a poet, he also published short stories, film scripts, publicly performed his works and conducted radio broadcasts.
