Dylan Thomas's letters bring the fascinating and tempestuous poet
and his times to life in a way that no biography can. The letters
begin in the poet's schooldays and end just before his death in New
York at the age of 39. In between, he loved, wrote, drank, begged
and borrowed his way through a flamboyant life. He was an
enthusiastic critic of other writers' work and the letters are full
of his thoughts on the work of his contemporaries, from T.S. Eliot
and W.H. Auden to Stephen Spender and Cecil Day-Lewis. A lifetime
of letters tell a remarkable story, each taking the reader a little
further along the path of the poet's self-destruction, but written
with such verve and lyricism that somehow the reader's sympathies
never quite abandon him.
