Dylan Thomas has been the subject of academic inquiry since his earliest publications. Yet even today, scholars continue to find new ways of exploring his work. Bringing together a number of leading scholars who specialize in Thomas’s work, this volume showcases eight exciting new critical perspectives. The book is the first to provide a critical overview of the whole of Thomas’s wide-ranging output, including his poetry, prose, and correspondence; his work on wartime propaganda filmmaking; his late play for voices, Under Milk Wood; and his influence in letters and wider society.
