Natur a chynnwys

Letter, dated 23 August 1939, from Dylan Thomas to Thomas Taig, enclosing a selection of poems intended 'for some kind of dramatic presentation' (f. 1). The writer encloses holograph fair copies of two of his poems: 'Find meat on bones that soon have none ...' (ff. 2-4) and 'Ears in the turrets hear ...' (ff. 5-6). He also encloses his own transcripts of George Woodcock's poem 'Landore' (f. 7), and Alan Pryce-Jones's 'Voyage' (ff. 8-9), together with three published issues of Keidrych Rhys's periodical Wales, 1937-8 (ff. 10-69), one of which bears Dylan's signature, and notes (f. 69 verso).
Thomas Taig was active in the Swansea Little Theatre, and intended to present poems by Welshmen writing in English at a London theatre at the end of September 1939; see further Paul Ferris (ed.), Dylan Thomas: The Collected Letters (London, 2000), pp. 438 and 452n.
