ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the poetry of Dylan Thomas by focusing on the "In Country Sleep." It strengthens the confidence that sound is a precious primitive part of the poetic gift and a conspicuous part if the beneficiary of the gift is a Celt. Thomas is a Celt whose poems when voiced and sounded aloud, they move into a clarity and definition which does not appear on the printed page. Each of the his poems is a distinguished and characteristic piece of work and each exemplifies a different aspect of Thomas sensibility and craftsmanship. All deal with his favored subjects: life, death, country matters and Wales.
