Dylan Thomas

I've just reread 'Altarwise by Owl-Light', Dylan Thomas's mesmerising/bonkers sonnet sequence (only the first four are available at the link). I don't know why, but people don't really talk about Thomas at the moment - perhaps he's one of those fixtures that become invisible. But his writing is so odd, perplexing, beautiful, difficult, musical and popular that I always come away from it with an expanded sense of what is possible.
