“Thomas’ second volume Twenty-five Poems appeared in September 1936 by which time he had joined London’s bohemian society. The full meaning of his poetry – the human passage from womb to tomb – with its multiple and occasional over-dense use of compound adjectives through religious, sexual and natural imagery, continues for many readers to be obscure.” (J.Murray)
