Dylan Thomas [electronic resource]: A Portrait

HTV Limited
Format
Video; Computer Resource; Online Video; Online
Summary
A warm, insightful and informative portrait of the Welsh poet who spoke with the tongue of angels and looked like an unmade bed-or so said The New York Times. If poetry can be explained through an understanding of the poet, and if a poet can be understood through a knowledge of his childhood, his home environment, his schooling, his friends, his childhood memories, and the landscape he selected to write from and about, then this program is a genuine clue to the work of Dylan Thomas. At the very least, it provides the background that produced "Do Not Go Gentle," the site and sights of "Over St. John's Hill," the characters of "A Child's Christmas in Wales," and other landmarks on the trail of Dylan Thomas.
