A Walking Tour of Greenwich Village - Dylan Thomas
Dylan Thomas is one of the most recognizable Welsh names in the United States. He’s best known for his landmark poems, such as ‘Do not go gentle into that good night’ and ‘Death shall have no dominion’, plays such as, ‘Under Milk Wood’, and classic stories, such as ‘A Child’s Christmas in Wales’.
Born in Swansea in 1914, the legendary poet spent much of his life traveling back and forth between London and his home in Laugharne, yet he is often associated with the city of New York. Between 1950 and 1953, Dylan visited New York on four occasions, the last of which culminated in his passing.
On this episode, Gideon & Richard were joined by Swansea poet and author, Peter Thabit Jones, on a guided walking tour through Greenwich Village, visiting some of Dylan’s old watering holes. The tour, which was written by Peter and Aeronwy Thomas, can be purchased as a self-guided book or accessed through its affiliated app.
