Dylan Thomas' "A Child's Christmas in Wales"

Dylan Thomas’ “A Child’s Christmas in Wales”

Every Christmas I put in a cassette tape ( the bookstore did not carry the CD-version at the time ) and listen to Dylan Thomas, in his ever-so theatrical, booming voice, reading his charming account of his childhood memories of Christmas in Wales in his “A Child’s Christmas in Wales” (1952).  The BBC later produced a television movie in 1987. The other five poems included are: Fern Hill, Do Not Go Gently into that Good Night, In the White Giant’s Thigh, Ballad of the Long-Legged Bait and Ceremony After a Fire Raid.
