I only visited the Dylan Thomas exhibit while at the Centre, but was totally blown away. Although I knew the name, I was not familiar with his writing. It seems we never got to 20th century poets in school, having spent so much time on Beowulf and other ancient stuff we couldn't relate to. What a shame. If we had studied Dylan Thomas, I may have a totally different attitude toward poetry today. He was a genius of the English language. I was utterly taken with the poetry in the exhibit and now want to read more.
What a tragedy to lose such talent at such a young age. I take it, from the exhibit, that there was much fiction regarding his life while he was alive, most of which he propagated himself. I'm glad to have discovered the truth about this man who never seemed to feel comfortable in his adult life. Thankfully he shared with us such rich memories of his childhood in his writing and did not go gentle into that good night.
Very highly recommended.
