Description

This stunning release includes the highly acclaimed re-make of Dylan's definitive play, "Under Milk Wood" with Richard Burton and Sian Phillips as the first and second voices. Dylan Thomas's lyrical masterpiece traces the lives of a group of villagers in a tiny Welsh seaport. With words good enough to eat, "Dylan Thomas" portrays their innermost thoughts from fantastic dreamworlds to waking lives full of a riotous mix of prudery and bawdiness. Also included is "Dylan Thomas at the BBC", the "BBC Archives" contain a wealth of material featuring Dylan Thomas - not only readings of his own work, but also dramatic readings of other work such as Dr Faustus. These, together with interviews with the poet, form a fascinating audio portrait of a brilliant man. Released to coincide with the 50th anniversary since "Under Milk Wood" won the Prix Italia and the 90th anniversary of Dylan Thomas's birth.
