Dylan Thomas in love

Dylan Thomas’ first love letter to his wife may fetch up to £50,000 next week at Sotheby’s. (Via Ed.)

Thomas wrote plenty of love letters, to plenty of women. Most of his romantic correspondence was collected in a volume several years back. From a letter to his first love: “I’m just on the borders of DTs darling, and I’ve wasted some of my tremendous love for you on a lank redmouthed girl with a reputation like hell.”
