Published in anticipation of the centenary of the poet's birth, The Poetry of Dylan Thomas is the first study of the poet to show how his work may be read in terms of contemporary critical concerns, using theories of modernism, the body, gender, the carnivalesque, language, hybridity and the pastoral in order to view it in an original light. Moreover, in presenting a Dylan Thomas who has real significance for twenty-first century readers, it shows that such a reappraisal also requires us to re-think some of the ways in which all post-Waste Land British poetry has been read in the last few decades.

MEDIA REVIEWS
This is a fascinating example of how profoundly enlivening and intellectually challenging the single-author study can be. That this is only the beginning - one hopes - of a serious reconsideration of Thomas' poetry suddenly makes the present a great place to be.
-- Amy McCauley * New Welsh Review *
