This edition of Under Milk Wood by Dylan Thomas is finely illustrated with lithographs by Ceri Richards and is edited with an introduction by Douglas Cleverdon.
The play was introduced as a radio drama in 1954. It was later adapted for stage and film. In the play, the narrator is beckoning the audience into the dreams and thoughts of the residents of a fictional small Welsh fishing village. Characters include Captain Cat who is reliving his seafaring life, a widow who is constantly nagging her two dead husbands, and one young woman pinning for her dead lover. Later in the play the townsfolk "awaken" and realize how their feeling affect their daily lives.
