In parenthesis; seinnyessit e gledyf ym penn mameu by David Jones( Book )

101 editions published between 1937 and 2016 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,354 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This writing has to do with some things I saw, felt, and was part of": with quiet modesty, David Jones begins a work that is among the most powerful imaginative efforts to grapple with the carnage of the First World War, a book celebrated by W.B. Yeats and T.S. Eliot as one of the masterpieces of modern literature. Fusing poetry and prose, gutter talk and high music, wartime terror and ancient myth, Jones, who served as an infantryman on the Western Front, presents a picture at once panoramic and intimate of a world of interminable waiting and unforseen death. And yet throughout he remains alert to the flashes of humanity that light up the wasteland of war. -- Back cover

"The artist and poet David Jones (1895-1974) considered The Rime of the Ancient Mariner to be 'one of the great achievements of English poetry, and not only great but unique'. In 1929 Jones made ten copper engravings for a limited edition of Coleridge's poem ..." "This new edition (the first in an accessible and affordable format) is prefaced by David Jones's Introduction. Also included is an Afterword by Thomas Dilworth, with twenty-eight illustrations, discussing the biographical context of the engravings, interpreting them, and illuminating an aspect of the form of the poem which may have influenced the engravings."--Jacket
Wedding poems by David Jones( Book )

3 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 122 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Published here for the first time are two poems by David Jones written in 1940 in London during the Blitz. The first poem, 'Prothalamion', is a powerful commemoration of the Blitz and must be ranked among the finest short poems of the 1939-45 war. The second, longer poem, 'Epithalamion', is a symbolic assessment of western culture since the middle ages. Revealing new aspects of Jones's social conscience, this poem adds to the celebration of the feminine throughout his work. It also embodies an aesthetic development from In Parenthesis to his greatest work, The Anathemata. As such it has an important place in the history of modern literature. In the Afterword, Thomas Dilworth, the leading Jones scholar, interprets the poems and reveals origins and human prototype for Jones's contemporaneous painting, Aphrodite in Aulis. Providing biographical context for the poems and painting, he presents a vivid portrait of David Jones and a fascinating evocation of the war."--BOOK JACKET
