Under Milk Wood was the last of Dylan’s works, but, in many ways, the culmination of them. It was written for radio and is told through narration and a host of eccentric characters. You watch them ‘through the eyes’ of blind Captain Cat, witness the daily activities of the small Welsh town Llareggub (spell that backwards!) and end up loving them, despite their flaws. Yet, also remember, as Dylan said, ‘Love the words, love the words’.
