THOMAS: Under Milk Wood (1954) / Return Journey to Swansea / Selected poems and stories (Dylan Thomas/ Jason Hughes/ Michael Sheen/ Philip Madoc/ Richard Bebb/ Richard Burton) (Naxos Audio Books: NA434312)

Shipping time: In stock | Expected delivery 1-2 days | Free UK Delivery
This varied, well-chosen selection brings onto one CD set the best of Dylan Thomas. Here is the legendary recording of Under Milk Wood, with Richard Burton and Richard Bebb as narrators; but here also are two radio productions he wrote before that great classic, and though interesting in their own right, they show how Under Milk Wood grew gradually in his imagination. Thomas was a charismatic if idiosyncratic performer of his own poetry and stories and here is a representative selection. Performances of Dylan Thomas have since moved on and the greatness of the writer as a poet and storyteller are perhaps best heard in new recordings by actors of our own time. Here Bebb, Madoc and Hughes share some of Thomas's finest, most challenging and endearing works.
