Dylan Thomas is one of the most extraordinary and original writers of the twentieth century. His poetry and short stories command global popularity, yet constantly surprise and challenge in their daring experimentalism. Dylan Thomas was born in Swansea in 1914, and his poetry and fiction emerge from the intense experiences of growing up in a cultural borderland (between Welsh- and English-speaking Wales, rural and industrial) and as a response to the shock of modernity. In his respectable home and community, Thomas often felt stifled and his sensual, iconoclastic, humorous writing is as much a reaction against his ‘ugly, lovely’ hometown, as he embraced his rural Welsh connections to the West.
Each of the selected applicants will receive £3,000.
