Poets to Check Out - Dylan Thomas

OK, this is a Volkswagon advert but just listen. Richard Burton reading Dylan Thomas. I challenge you not to shiver.

From Under Milkwood, here is the 1963 BBC radio play is absolutely riveting. The words, that voice.

Slow black, slow black, crow black fishing boats...

That version of Under Milk Wood is utterly implanted in my memory.
Thanks for giving me another listen. I only ever see Liz Taylor as Rosie Probert though!
