To Dylan by Robert Gurney is a book of poems dedicated to Dylan Thomas who has his Centenary celebrated this year. It follows Dylan around Gower, in Port Eynon, Horton, Three Cliffs Bay, Rhossili, Reynoldston, Llangennith and on Cefn Bryn but also outside Gower, in Swansea, Oystermouth, Gorseinon, Laugharne and London.
The author first visited Gower when he was a child. He remembers standing, in the nineteen-fifties, on shattered glass in the then abandoned airport control tower on Fairwood Common. He remembers cycling past high roadside banks bursting with wild flowers.
