Dylan Thomas was a legendary reader of poetry, his own and others. I may have this wrong, but I believe he subsisted on honoraria from giving university readings.
Could anyone be a better reader of Dylan's poetry than Dylan?
As it turns out, the answer is yes. Here's an audio/video of Richard Burton reading Fern Hill. Many thanks to The New Combat and this post by Bill Ney for getting me to think about the brilliant Mr. Burton.
