NewsVault Special Collection: A Resource for Dylan Thomas (1914-1953)

Widely recognised as one of the twentieth century's most influential writers and poets, Dylan Thomas was principally known for his inspiring imagery and willingness to perform his craft publicly. His work lead to a broadcasting career with the BBC, which gave the Welshman a platform to share his literature with the world. To recognise the 100th anniversary of his birth, we have chosen a number of articles from Gale NewsVault and made them freely available.
