About the author

The Simple Things - - ESCAPE | A PLACE TO STAY -

Welsh­man Dy­lan Thomas (1914–1953) had a rep­u­ta­tion for be­ing a “rois­ter­ing, drunken and doomed poet”, but was metic­u­lous in his work, re-draft­ing ob­ses­sively. The re­sult is a lyri­cal mu­si­cal­ity in his po­ems, which lend them­selves to be­ing read aloud. ‘Be­ing But Men’ can be found in The Col­lected Po­ems of Dy­lan Thomas (Orion Books).
