Published in time for the centenary of the poet's birth in 1914, The Poetry of Dylan Thomasis the first book to read Dylan Thomas's poetry through the lens of modern critical theory, bringing theories of modernism, the body, gender, the carnivalesque, language, hybridity, performance, and the pastoral to bear on his works. John Goodby calls for a fundamental reappraisal not only of Thomas's poetry but of the ways in which postWaste Land British poetry has been read over recent decades. For the first time, Dylan Thomas's poetry and life as a poet are brought fully into twenty-first-century terms.
