An anthology after Dylan Thomas
Publication May 14 2021 - International Dylan Thomas Day
Editors: Anna Saunders & Ronnie Goodyer
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.
"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."
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’.
