About The Book

Although Dylan Thomas died in 1953, his work has never been out of print and his notorious life continues to fascinate. To mark the centenary of Thomas's birth, Dylan Thomas's Swansea, Gower and Laugharne is being reprinted. This popular publication provides a detailed account of the relationship between Thomas's life, work and the three places that were most important to him. Illustrated throughout with photographs, this book takes the reader on a tour of the locations intimately connected with the poet, outlining the history and literary history of each area as well as Thomas's links with these places and his use of them in his work. The result is a unique literary guide for all those who are interested in Dylan Thomas and the places that shaped him, whether they are visitors to Swansea, Gower or Laugharne, or armchair travellers who would like to know more about the geographical and cultural associations of Thomas's writing.


'This is the most pleasing of books: a small slender volume that generously covers its subject ... impeccably researched and comprehensively indexed to meet every need of the literary tourist and offering much to Thomas specialists besides.' - Planet
