The definitive edition of Dylan Thomas' five published volumes of poems: '18 Poems', 'Twenty-five Poems', 'The Map Of Love', 'Deaths And Entrances', and 'In Country Sleep'.
Introduced by the poet himself with a passionate seashore 'Prologue' in which the self-styled Noah of poetry builds his ark against ruin, this edition includes his last, unfinished poem 'Elegy', and the opening of 'In Country Heaven', an ambitious project conceived after the dropping of the atom bomb. It shows the full range of this tempestuous and meticulous Welsh artist, who once cheerfully claimed that he had beast, angel and madman within him.
