David Jones, the greatest painter-poet since Blake, was celebrated and revered by the most renowned of his contemporaries. Since his death in 1974, a growing circle of enthusiasts has valued his work for its scope and complexity. For the centenary of his birth, this much awaited major critical study introduces Jones’s visual achievement to a new and larger public. Jonathan Miles and Derek Shiel have uncovered a vast amount of hitherto unseen material – sketches, watercolours, carvings, engravings, inscriptions and ephemera – and place Jones, not only in the context of twentieth century British art, but also in relation to continental movements. Their magnificent study considers all aspects of his visual work in the light of his experience as a soldier, his conversion to Catholicism, his Classical and Celtic researches, and places these against his growing cultural disaffection and the submerged drama of his life.

Very good condition, in slightly used dust-jacket.
