Talk : "The Welshness of Edward Thomas"

Dr. Andrew Webb, lecturer in English Literature at Bangor University talks with Welsh Bookseller Jeff Towns about their new book on the Welshness of Edward Thomas. 

Jeff Towns is one of the world's leading Dylan Thomas experts. An antiquarian bookseller by trade, based in the poet's home of Swansea, Jeff was originally known, both locally and globally, as 'Jess the Books'. He is now known simply, affectionately and professionally as 'The Dylan Thomas Guy'. Dr. Andrew Webb and he have felt  the Welsh traditions found in the work of the country life writer and poet Edward Thomas have been unfairly ignored especially last year which marked one hundred years since the death of Thomas in Arras.
