Dear Dylan

Dear Dylan

Edited by Anna Saunders & Ronnie Goodyer

An anthology of poems after, and letters to, Dylan Thomas


What would today’s poets like to say to one of the greatest poets of the 20th Century? The answer is here in ‘Dear Dylan’ – poems after, and letters to him, all written by acclaimed contemporary poets. Thomas, who has written some of the most loved and quoted poems in the English language – alongside short stories, film scripts and the play for voices ‘Under Milk Wood’ – has continued to be a huge influence on artists worldwide long since his death in 1953, and this exciting anthology celebrates that legacy.

 'Dear Dylan’ celebrates Dylan’s legacy, and demonstrates how his work continues to inspire writers and artists the world over, years after his death. We hope you will enjoy our final selection – a tribute to  the extraordinary talents of a writer who, whether he was writing letters, short stories, scripts or poetry, captured our hearts as he ‘set fire to the stars’

‘‘The poems and letters in ‘Dear Dylan’ illustrate how he has influenced and affected the lives of the poets featured, their attitudes towards him, at different stages of their lives. I’m delighted with this book – and International Dylan Thomas Day is the perfect date for publication!’
