[It is] the work Thomas himself had considered most representative of his voice as a poet and, now, of his legacy — a legacy that has continued to influence generations of writers, artists, and creative mavericks: Bob Dylan changed his last name from Zimmerman in an homage to the poet, The Beatles drew his likeness onto the cover of Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, and Christopher Nolan made “Do not go gentle into that good night” a narrative centerpiece of his film Interstellar.

—Maria Popova, Brain Pickings

The language is enchanting and the poetry shines with an unearthly radiance.

New York Times

…altogether a rich sampling of a man whose sensuousness reached far into both comedy and mysticism.

Newsweek

The greatest radio play ever.

The Telegraph

My favorite poet is Dylan Thomas.

—Jimmy Carter

Thomas meant so much to me and my generation, he is still singing in his chains like the sea, a force driving the flowers.

—Seamus Heaney

His prose, his images, his stories all pulsate with life.

The Los Angeles Times

A dazzling obscure writer who can be enjoyed without understanding.

—Robert Lowell

Thomas really found himself and artist who could achieve poetry by prose.

The London Sunday Times

It would be hard for any work of art to communicate more directly and funnily and lovingly what it is like to be alive.

—Randall Jarrell

A dazzling combination of poetic fireworks and music-hall humor.

The New York Times

Under Milk Wood is lyrical, impassioned and funny, an Our Town given universality: by comparison with anything broadcast for a long time, it exploded on the air like a bomb, but a life-giving bomb.

The Nation

Dazzlingly inventive and diverse… glorious, sweet and funny… Another fine addition to the Dylan Thomas shell providing insight into the man and his art.

Booklist

Dylan Thomas threw two purses to the world. One was filled with poems, the other with the golden glitter of his wit and fantasy. That second purse contains his finished prose and his unfinished film scripts. Even a little half-sovereign is rare enough, and here is one that sparkles and shimmers with the best.

—Constantine Fitzgibbon

His prose, his images, his stories all pulsate with life, with a beat and a variety that captivate, invigorate, and clarify.
