Welsh poet Dylan Thomas became an appreciated and famed poet and radio broadcaster during his lifetime, noted for his original and rhythmic writing style and erratic, wild behavior. Although influenced by the modern symbolism and surrealism movement, Thomas refused to align with any literary group. His verbal style played against strict verse forms, such as in hi well-konwn villanelle "Do not go gentle into that good night". The present volume contains a comprehensive selection of the great poet's works including When Once the Twilight Locks No Longer, I Dreamed My Genesis, and This Bread I Break.
