About Gwyn Thomas

Gwyn Thomas was born into a large and boisterous family in Cymmer, Porth in 1913. After a scholarship to Porth County School he went to St Edmund Hall, Oxford, where he read Spanish. Mass unemployment at home and in-ground poverty deepened his radicalism. After working for the WEA he became a teacher, first in Cardigan and from 1942 in Barry. In 1962 he left teaching and concentrated on writing and broadcasting. His many published works of fiction include The Dark Philosophers (1946)- The Alone to the Alone (1947)- All Things Betray Thee (1949) The World Cannot Hear You (1951) and Now Lead Us Home (1952), and he also published collections of shorts stories, six stage plays and the autobiography A Few Selected Exits (1968).
