  • Dylan Thomas and his World
    Saturday 6 February 2021, 10am to 1PM

    Speaker(s): Sue Mendus

    In this session, we will look at the ways in which Dylan Thomas’s world – the world of rural and industrial South Wales in the 1930s and ‘40s – influenced his writings. Beginning in his hometown (the ‘ugly, lovely town’ of Swansea) and ending in the west Wales village of Laugharne, which inspired his most famous work, Under Milk Wood, we will see how his poems reflect the world, and the times, in which he lived. And in which he drank!
