'It is spring, moonless night in the small town, starless and bible-black...'

Under Milk Wood tells the story of a Welsh village during one spring day. It is populated by some of the best-loved characters in British literature. Lyrical, funny, moving, it is rooted in place but with a universality that has spoken to generations of readers. A Welsh epic, a work of poetic genius, a modern classic.

MEDIA REVIEWS

A tour de force of oral poetry which oozes word pictures and onomatopoeic musicality - Guardian

A dazzling combination of poetic fireworks and music-hall humor - New York Times

Dylan Thomas...was the most musical of poets. His work is so full of rhythm and melody that one of life's great pleasures is to read him aloud, feeling those syllables roll around your mouth while the rhythms find their ebb and flow - Cerys Matthews

Thomas stretches out his sentences into great, rolling, relentless waves, or crushes words together into compound coinages as the voices whisper and declaim: the play is bawdy, tragic, lyrical, sly, odd, familiar, broad and deep by turns - Guardian

I'm not sure anyone really needs my opinion on 'Under Milk Wood' as Thomas wrote it. But for what it's worth I think it's brilliant - time hasn't dimmed it, his language remains bracingly wild, elemental and weird - Time Out

“No place like Llareggub”

Just as I remembered. A wonderful descriptive insight into a little welsh seaside village & it's inhabitants. Classic Dylan Thomas, narrated superbly by Richard Burton. Love it!

“Beautiful Classic”

It is really important to remember when embarking on Under Milk Wood, that it is, in fact, a play, made to be read aloud and given life in voice.
Under Milk Wood is a tale of people, living and aging in a village;... More
