This proud nation with its long history—sometimes rough, hewn from bleak landscapes, and sometimes gently soft from its comforting voices—has produced a long succession of artists and poets.

In the latter category, Louis MacNeice most probably stands pre-eminent; his words and phrasing are on a plane few can equal and most are in awe of. But in this volume we do put forward others who have their own words and voice to add to this rich tapestry—Wilfred Owen, Henry Vaughan, George Herbert, and Edward Thomas amongst them.

    " AP Lit rekindled my love for Dylan Thomas <3 "Do Not Go Gentle" is one of my favorite poems of all time. I really got into some of his other ones, but this one remains my favorite! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Robert | 2/26/2011

    " The pitfalls of his verse that are too wrapped up in his stylistic choices are rectified by an order of magnitude by the many successes. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Stephen | 11/1/2010

    " This is my holy bible.
    I feel out of place without it.

    Favorite passages soon to follow. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Justin | 9/26/2010

    " At last! As evidenced by the time it took me to read this book, I found it incredibly hard going. Thomas wrote some of my favourite poems, but most of his poems are nonsensical...I skipped some of the longer poems because they were painful to read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kristin | 7/30/2010

    " Things with Thomas started out shaky, moved to what felt like a higher plane of thought, and then abruptly ended. It was a whirlwind, and I'm not quite sure what to say about it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nikki | 6/15/2010

    " I love poetry, and to me, Thomas embodies all that is true poetry to me. Love, death, jealousy, anger, relationships, ect.

    Two favorites are:
    1.) Do Not Go Gentle Into That Good Night. (Best poem ever in my humble opinion)

    2.)This Side of the Truth "

    " Somehow I lost this book but I don't feel too bad about it. His works sort of crossed wires in my brain. The captivated me but I don't know why. "
