Dylan Thomas

tenby38One cannot go to  Wales without mentioning Dylan Thomas, one of the great Welsh poets of the twentieth century. 2014 being the  centenary of his birth, we see  traces of his poetry everywhere: in train stations, bookshops  and, of course, pubs. In Tenby, the oldest pub in the village claims that  Dylan Thomas  sat there once, with his manuscript “Under the Milk Wood”  and that  after drinking all night,  he forgot his manuscript on a bar stool. I was unable to establish the veracity of this event  but I liked to believe, while  sitting in a corner near the fire, that the poet had spent some time there and,  who knows, maybe even worked on some lines.
