A Prospect of the Sea (1954) was published posthumously though Dylan Thomas had selected the material in the volume. Part I contains eleven of the early pre-war stories, the first selection of this work published in book form in this country, but of new and particular interest are the items in Part II, for they indicate the final direction of Thomas’s development as a story writer and as a prose writer separate from his work for radio. They certainly confirm his continuing zest and the jester’s developing comic spirit, with its blend of instinctive joi-de-vivre and the haunting sense of innocence and loss.
