Dr Karen Karbeiner's Visit

M. Wynn Thomas writes:

On one of the rare gorgeously sunny day we've enjoyed this dismal summer, I had the the pleasure of the company of Dr Karen Karbiener, a Whitman specialist from New York University, on a trip to Dylan Thomas country. At Cwmdonkin Drive she was enchanted when we were unexpectedly approached by an immensely friendly gentleman whose family turned out to have occupied the birthplace immediately following the departure of the Thomas clan. As for the Boathouse visit, it brought to her mind the photograph of Whitman that Thomas had pinned to the wall of his writing shed.
