About this book
A biography of the Welsh poet, regarded as one of the greats of the post-war period and whose work is published by Penguin, Orion and Bloodaxe. This is a sometimes surprising portrait, comic and absurd at times, which captures the warmth and humanity of a singular man, and is a strong successor to Rogers' previous acclaimed biography, "The Last Englishman: J.L. Carr".
Byron Rogers' biography of Wales's national poet and vicar, R.S. Thomas has been hailed as a 'masterpiece', even as a work of 'genius', by reviewers from Craig Brown to the Archbishop of Canterbury.
