‘The return of Dylan Thomas’s poetry to its proper high valuation, and a positive reassessment of its influence, have been to a remarkable extent the work of John Goodby as editor and critic. This volume is the essential scholarly companion to Goodby’s definitive edition of Thomas’s poems.’
-Professor John Wilkinson, University of Chicago

‘John Goodby’s long awaited Discovering Dylan is a marvellous book, and it is a loyal companion in the best possible sense to Thomas’s poems and notebooks (including the extraordinary fifth notebook). For it elucidates how the poems work and their relationships to each other, it shines light onto many sources and contexts, and it is written with a deft and knowledgeable style, demonstrating why Thomas scholarship has changed so much in recent years. Discovering Dylan is now the starting point for all future criticism – and appreciation – of this wonderful and complex poet.’
-Dr Leo Mellor, Cambridge University
