Tony Curtis – My Life with Dylan Thomas
Dylan Thomas Centre
An illustrated talk by Professor Tony Curtis for the 2014 centenary celebrations of the birth of Dylan Thomas.
Tony Curtis was born in Carmarthen in 1946 and so for seven years shared that town with Dylan, his family and friends, for whom it was the main railway station and watering-hole on their way from Laugharne to the rest of the world. Wales’s first Professor of Poetry describes being taught, as an undergraduate, by Vernon Watkins at Swansea University in 1967 and he goes on to trace Dylan’s influence on his own writing and the experiences of others, including Dannie Abse, Jonah Jones, John Pudney, John Ormond, Glyn Jones, Aeronwy Thomas and Ceri Richards.
