Under Milk Wood: Dylan Thomas & Cerys Matthews

£20.00

Commissioned by the BBC, and described by Dylan Thomas as ‘a play for voices’, ‘Under Milk Wood’ takes the form of an emotive and hilarious account of a spring day in the fictional Welsh seaside village of Llareggub. We learn of the inhabitants’ dreams and desires, their loves and regrets. We meet characters such as Captain Cat who dreams of his drowned former seafellows and Nogood Boyo who dreams of nothing at all. Adapted by Cerys Matthews, in an illustrated edition.

Description

We are not wholly bad or good
Who live our lives under Milk Wood
And Thou, I know, wilt be the first
To see our best side, not our worst.

In this enchanting illustrated adaptation, Cerys Matthews brings Dylan Thomas’s beloved classic to new life.

This is a bedtime story like no other; a book to be treasured by many generations; a book for babies and old men alike, for all that are young at heart.

Welcome to the small seaside town of Llareggub.

Here you will find dreamers, workers, singers, sinners, the young, old, blue, bold and a mix of all inbetween.

Here you will meet Captain Cat and Rosie Probert, Mr Organ Morgan and Mrs Ogmore-Pritchard, Nogood
Boyo, Mog and Myfanwy.

Here you will watch a day in their lives play out – from a dark, moonless night to a morning that is busy as bees; from a sunny, slow lulling afternoon to a deep, drifting dusk.

So, to begin at the beginning . . .
