Subtitled, The Life Of R. S. Thomas. Thomas is now accepted, along with Ted Hughes, Philip Larkin and Seamus Heaney, as one of the great post-war British poets. All his life, he was a minister in the Church of Wales, at a succession of increasingly remote country parishes. He had a reputation for being an austere, unforgiving, taciturn, wintry man. Now Byron Rogers has unearthed the amazing story of this man's life, and that of his household - one both comic, absurd and touching.
The endpapers illustrate details from two panels of 'The Dance of Life', the mural painted Elsi Eldridge, wife of R. S. Thomas.
Hard back book with dust jacket. There is a very small, closed tear on the jacket and some rubbing along the edges. The book itself is like new.
