Discover Dylan Thomas: Placing Literature | Discover Dylan Thomas

This week I came across a really interesting website about Placing Literature and it got me thinking. I wondered if place could have an influence on our understanding of literature. Can a visual and sensory experience help you connect with a poem or piece of prose? Look, I’ll come clean…I already believe it can. I […]

"A Welsh mam, a Caedmon recording and a red Dansette record player": How my passion for poetry began. Guest blog by Josh Brown | Discover Dylan Thomas

Who was Dylan Thomas? Augustus John’s tousled angelic Fitzrovian? The Brown’s Hotel boozer, drinking at a book signing, staring back in the White Horse, almost lost!? At the BBC relaxed before the enormous microphone, ultimate performer of his own genius? Dissolutely sailing out from the Chelsea, a rock star poet seduced by the love America […]

And Thomas’ poetic style is revealed in the prose as well: vivid imagery, alliteration, purposeful run-on lines, […]
