Description
 
Andrew Sinclair. Dylan Thomas was the best lyric poet of his age, who brought a new mass audience to his craft. He forever struggled with his talent, being at once a brilliantly distinctive performer & his own worst critic. This book explores how & why this enormously skilled writer was slowly defeated by his own self-destructive nature. Examines the tensions & conflicts between Dylanís Welsh working-class heritage & puritanical English upbringing, & offers fresh insight into the relation between Dylanís poetry & his life. From Dylanís dream of Wales to the brawling & boozing in Fitzrovia in the 20s & 40s to the American lecture tour that finally killed him in the early 50s, this is the tragic & exuberant story of a cult figure in his own time & a poet for all time. B&W photos.
