The famous 20th century Welsh poet Dylan Thomas was born on 27 October 1914 in Swansea in Wales. We explore the Wales of this fabulous poet, from his boyhood haunts in the Gower Peninsula with its steep hills, beaches, cliff tops and deep, dark caves. Dylan spent all his childhood holidays in the Welsh speaking communities of the Llansteffan Peninsula in Carmarthenshire, home of his many funny and eccentric aunts and uncles that we meet in his short stories. Finally we visit Laugharne (pronounced ‘Larn’) ‘the strangest town in Wales’. Thomas lived in the town for the final four years of his life, and he had a peculiar attraction to the place where he wrote his beloved radio play ‘Under Milk Wood’. We explore the places, the poems and the poet’s life. Luentokieli englanti.
