Have Your Say: Advantage for Dylan?
PEOPLE have different tastes in culture but there is no denying that Dylan Thomas was a great writer of prose and poetry while he lasted.
He is revered and admired throughout the English speaking world. American Presidents have come to Swansea to pay homage to him.
Dylan Thomas had the advantage that he did not speak Welsh.
His bilingual parents like many others at that time and since had chosen not to speak to him in Welsh, so English became his first and only language, like most of the population of Wales today.
