This volume discusses the work of David Jones both as artist and as poet. Each of the 12 essays in this collection presents new material and in so doing makes more apparent the formidably wide range of Jones's work.;The collection brings together experts in different fields. The juxtaposition of contribution by literary scholars, art historians, writers on philosophy and religion, poets and a calligraphers gives rise to a set of cross-connections. The book succeeds notably in harmonizing a multidisciplinary approach to David Jones.;These essays are written to a high scholarly standard but are at the same time accessible to the non-specialist reader. They take a new and perhaps more critical approach to Jones, an approach which in no way diminishes but rather enhances his achievement.
