THESIS TITLE - The Fifth Notebook of Dylan Thomas

Research Synopsis

My PhD is a two-part project:

Firstly, I am co-authoring with Professor Goodby an annotated critical edition of the previously unknown fifth notebook of Dylan Thomas’s poetry that was acquired by Swansea University.

Secondly, I am writing a thesis on the importance of process philosophy to the early poetry and prose of Dylan Thomas, examining Thomas’s world view through his literary engagements with gender, religion, and science.
