David Jones: Engraver, Soldier, Painter, Poet

London Review Bookshop

Though he was admired by some of the liveliest cultural figures of the twentieth century, David Jones is not known or celebrated in the way that Eliot, Beckett or Joyce have been. Thomas Dilworth's biography - the first full biography of Jones, and thirty years in the making - aims to redress this oversight, reframing the poet, visual artist and essayist as a true genius and the great lost Modernist.

Thomas Dilworth discussed Jones's life and work with writer and journalist Rachel Cooke, with readings from the book's editor and publisher, poet Robin Robertson.
