This new, revised edition of The Poems of Dylan Thomas is based on the collection edited by Thomass life-long friend and fellow poet, Daniel Jones, first published by New Directions in 1971. Jones started with the ninety poems Thomas selected for his Collected Poems in 1952 (at a time when the poet expected that many years of work still lay ahead of him) and, after exhaustive research and consideration, added one hundred previously finished, though uncollected, poems (including twenty-six juvenile works), and two unfinished poems, and arranged them all in chronological order of composition, creating the most complete edition of Thomass poems ever published.This revised edition contains all the original material and incorporates textual corrections. Also included are an Introduction and concise notes by Daniel Jones, a brief chronology of the poets life, and a compact disc containing vintage recordings of Thomas reading eight of his poems in his famous Welsh-singing style, making this edition of The Poems of Dylan Thomas a truly remarkable collection.
