Collected Poems: Dylan Thomas Paperback
by Dylan Thomas
The definitive edition of Dylan Thomas's five published volumes of poems: 18 POEMS, TWENTY-FIVE POEMS, THE MAP OF LOVE, DEATHS AND ENTRANCES and IN COUNTRY SLEEP. Dylan Thomas wrote passionately about life in all its moods and moments: from the first thrilling moments of childbirth to the darker moments of death and loss.
COLLECTED POEMS is 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.

Review by shoreline
This is a nice collection for someone who likes rich, metaphorical, obtuse poetry... Its way too heavy for me. Some of his more accessible poems are real masterpieces, but that's only around 10% of the book. The book also provides excellent annotations of the poems.
