Abstract

The prose rather than the poetry demonstrates Dylan Thomas’s concern with Wales. Taking his cue from Caradoc Evans, an Anglo-Welsh writer whom he much admired, Dylan abstained from writing about industrial South Wales, its unemployment and poverty, despite his familiarity with the deprivation of the area. Instead, he wrote initially, like Caradoc Evans, about a backward-looking rural Wales and in doing so concerned himself with a reality in Wales as profound as the consequences of industrialism: the pervading influence of the chapel subculture.
