This massive and lavishly illustrated book is a major critical study of David Jones, the great painter and poet. It introduces Jones's better known visual achievements and combines them with a vast amount of previously unpublished material-sketches, watercolors, carvings, engravings, inscriptions, and ephemera. The accompanying text places Jones not only in the context of 20th-century British art but also in relation to continental movements. This comprehensive study covers all aspects of his visual work in the light of his experience as a soldier in the Great War, his conversion to Catholicism, and his Classical and Celtic researches, and places these against his growing cultural disaffection and the submerged drama of his life.
