Description

Although writing predominantly in the English language, Dylan Thomas is regarded as many as Wales' finest poet. He became popular in his lifetime and remained so after his premature death. In his later life he acquired a reputation, which he encouraged, as a "roistering, drunken and doomed poet".



Born in Swansea in 1914, Dylan also lived in London and often toured America. It was on one of his speaking tours that he collapsed in the White Horse Tavern, in Greenwich Village, Manhattan, New York. He later died on 9th November 1953 in the St. Vincent's Hospital.



This new Pitkin biography explores Dylan the man, his poetry and his life, and is accompanied by beautiful illustrations.
