About this book

Introduction

Opening with Thomas's life, the book offers vignettes of Swansea in the 1920s and 1930s, pre- and post-war Laugharne and rural West Wales, wartime London and New York City in the early 1950s, seen through the poet's eyes. Thomas's political views are focused on, as well as his social attitudes.
