12/25/08: A Child's Christmas in Wales

Poet Dylan Thomas (1914-1953)
Poet Dylan Thomas (1914-1953)

By Doug Fabrizio

Salt Lake City, UT – This Christmas on RadioWest, we're giving you the gift of poetry. It's a reading by the poet Dylan Thomas of his classic work A Child's Christmas in Wales. There was an intensity to Thomas' lyricism that comes through in his nostalgic piece, and as the late Leslie Norris explained in 2001 - it contains the whole of Christmas somehow. We talked to Norris and to Utah's poet laureate Katharine Coles about the life and work of Dylan Thomas. (Rebroadcast)
