Eleven CD's of Dylan Thomas reading his own poetry and other people's poetry. Twelve-and-a-half hours of that wondrous Welsh voice roaring, murmuring, and half singing its way through Shakespeare and Auden and Hopkins and Thomas Hardy. $19.77 on Amazon.

What are you waiting for?!

There's a prose piece of Thomas's I enjoy; it's called "The Crumbs of One Man's Year." Is that one of the pieces that Thomas reads on these cds? (It's found in the book Quite Early One Morning.)

An excerpt:

"I was walking, one afternoon in August, along a riverbank -- thinking the same thoughts that I always think when I walk along a riverbank in August. As I was walking, I was thinking: now it is August, and I am walking along a riverbank. I do not think I was thinking of anything else."

Getting back to you...

Sorry Dylan: I went through the cd of readings from that book and it wasn't there. He does read "Quite Early One Morning," "Reminiscences of Childhood," "A Visit to Grandpa's," and "Holiday Memory."

One of the other interesting things in the collection is a radio show where Dylan Thomas reads Edith Sitwell's poetry and she explains it. It always strikes me how all these people knew each other. Edith Sitwell was friends with Roy Campbell, who was Dylan Thomas's drinking buddy...

Thanks, Meredith!

... Roy Campbell also made some beautiful translations of the poetry of St John of the Cross.

Generic Viagra (sildenafil citrate; brand names include: Aphrodil / Edegra / Erasmo / Penegra / Revatio / Supra / Zwagra) is an effective treatment for erectile dysfunction regardless of the cause or duration of the problem or the age of the patient.
Sildenafil Citrate is the active ingredient used to treat erectile dysfunction (impotence) in men. It can help men who have erectile dysfunction get and sustain an erection when they are sexually excited.
Generic Viagra is manufactured in accordance with World Health Organization standards and guidelines (WHO-GMP). Also you can find on our sites.
Generic Viagra is made with thorough reverse engineering for the sildenafil citrate molecule - a totally different process of making sildenafil and its reaction. That is why it takes effect in 15 minutes compared to other drugs which take 30-40 minutes to take effect.
Even in the most sexually liberated and self-satisfied of nations, many people still yearn to burn more, to feel ready for bedding no matter what the clock says and to desire their partner of 23 years as much as they did when their love was brand new.
The market is saturated with books on how to revive a flagging libido or spice up monotonous sex, and sex therapists say “lack of desire” is one of the most common complaints they hear from patients, particularly women.
