Publisher:
Published Date: 2005
Categories: Fiction
Edward Thomas's stories formed an important stage in his imaginative development, and constitute a significant achievement. His fiction includes stories reflecting his personal quest for spiritual and social values, which have considerable psychological interest; and versions of traditional Celtic and Norse tales and English proverbs. In both original and traditional tales Thomas explores the relation between the human world and the realm of nature. His stories were, as he said, written under a 'real impulse', and they represent his whole effort to shape imaginative responses to fundamental questions of life and death, the self, and reality. The Ship of Swallows is the first selection to have been made exclusively from Edward Thomas's fiction, which it represents at its best.

Edward Thomas Books, Edward Thomas poetry book Letters to Helen Authors: Edward Thomas, R. George Thomas
Publisher: Carcanet Press Ltd.
Published Date: 2000-01-01
Categories: Biography & Autobiography
Letters to Helen, edited from original manuscripts held in libraries in Aberystwyth and Cardiff, includes twenty one of the more than one thousand letters which the poet Edward Thomas sent to his wife Helen and eighteen of her replies. They give us a vivid insight into the heart of their legendary relationship, recounted in Under Storm's Wing, Helen's memoirs and their daughter Myfanwy's recollections. Thomas's life was tragically cut short in France in 1917. Helen and Edward were together for twenty-one years. The letters evoke a provincial and settled world of books and nature, the hardships love weathered, and the change that came in 1915. For the first time both sides of the correspondence are edited together, providing an unposed narrative portrait of one of our finest rural poets. Thomas's early letters to Harry and Jane Hooton complete this rich collection.

In 2011, South Sudan became independent following a long war of liberation, that gradually became marked by looting, raids and massacres pitting ethnic communities against each other. In this remarkably comprehensive work, Edward Thomas provides a multi-layered examination of what is happening in the country today. Writing from the perspective of South Sudan's most mutinous hinterland, Jonglei state, the book explains how this area was at the heart of South Sudan's struggle. Drawing on hundreds of interviews and a broad range of sources, this book gives a sharply focused, fresh account of South Sudan's long, unfinished fight for liberation.

Walt Whitman Poem
Sea-Shore Memories
 by Walt Whitman

OUT of the cradle endlessly rocking,

Over the sterile sands, and the fields beyond, where the child,
