Beautiful and Real

R.S. Thomas succeeds in capturing bits of his homeland, Wales, in his poetry. From the verses on Welsh peasants to the reflections on the spiritual nature of the universe, he completely captured my attention. His poetry is like Wales itself - beautiful, rugged, and deeply moving at all times. I turn to his poems to relax, to find peace, to enjoy myself, and to seek God. His poem, "The Bright Field" is one of those things that I hold dear in my life. While this collection does have a good selection of his poetry, it does not have all of his good stuff - its too thin. But its really the only thing in print that one can find by him. So I highly recommend purchasing this book to get a taste of a poet who truly knows how to craft words. He should not have been passed up for the Noble Prize when he was nominated for it.
