The following bibliography has been compiled by Dr John Goodby,
UCW Swansea. The bibliography is particularly specific in that it
does not list reams of books related to Thomas which have been published,
but in the consideration of John Goodby it is his summation of the
key books for core further advanced academic study. It also lists
the publication history of Thomas works prior and subsequently
after his death.
For readers wishing to find the definitive bibliography please see
J. Alexander Rolphs A Bibliography, which is the standard,
although new researches are revealing hitherto unknown texts by
Thomas and a revision since Rolphs 1956 edition, can be made
with Professor Ralph Mauds A Bibliographic History.
At the end of the bibliography there is a General context, literary
history and critical theory (edited selection) , in which are listed
texts not about Thomas, but the literary context in which Thomas
can be read and primers toward the way Thomas can be reassessed.
New readership of Dylan Thomas is now emerging within the context
of literary theory beyond the raft of subjective critical analysis
up to the 1970s.
