"This book is an intriguing translation project from poetry and sound to image, and provokes consideration of Thomas translation of real observations and eavesdroppings into fiction." Tracey Warr, "New Welsh Review""Reseña del editor:
Internationally acclaimed for its eccentricity and adored for its lovelorn lyricism, Dylan Thomas s groundbreaking 1954 "play for voices," "Under Milk Wood," has long echoed in the imagination of the founding father of British Pop Art, Sir Peter Blake. An obsession that has spanned almost thirty years, this "greenleaved sermon on the innocence of men" has filled the spaces of Blake s studio, played and replayed on broadcast recordings, and prompted several pilgrimages to Thomas s creative refuge at Laugharne, Carmarthenshire. All is "strangely simple and simply strange" in the sleepy Welsh seaside town of Llareggub, as the dreams, fantasies and realities of the inhabitants unfold across the cycle of one spring day. At once a lively and humorous depiction of the butchers, bakers, preachers and children, of Captain Cat, Nogood Boyo and Polly Garter with a ribaldry in which Blake delights it is also a modern pastoral tale on a Chaucerian scale, a quest for innocence and purity of utterance in a "darkest-before-dawn" world. Revealed here for the very first time with the definitive play text are the "dismays and rainbows" of this great artist s richly detailed sequences of 110 watercolors, pencil portraits and collages, comprising one of his most distinctive and significant single bodies of work."
