The ‘Flesh’s Vision’: Dylan Thomas’s Poetics of Sensation

Abstract

Dylan Thomas’s early poems shift the landmarks of sensory experience from the primacy of sight to a distribution of sensation throughout the body. They draw on Romantic poetics to recover the original impact of sensation, before the division of the senses, before the dissolution of sense data into mental images.
