'"The Anathemata" can scarcely fail to be counted a great book...It does what Epic is meant to do. It gives a philosophic view, tenable for our times, of the secret places where nature finds reconciliation with the Divine' - "The Listener". '"In Parenthesis" is one of the enduring works that came out of the first world war. "The Anathemata" is more obviously a poem, in the sense in which Pound's "Cantos" is a poem...Both his books - like his paintings - have a thrice-distilled quality of finality and impersonality, like Gothic stone-carvings or the paintings on the walls of the Lascaux caves' - Kathleen Raine.

David Jones (1895-1974) was born in Kent. In 1915, then an art student, he went to war with the Royal Welsh Fusiliers, where he fought in the battles of the Somme and Ypres. In 1922 he began a long association with the artist Eric Gill. In Parenthesis, based on Jones's experiences in World War I, was published in 1937, followed in 1952 by The Anathemata. David Jones's works are exhibited at the Tate Museum and the National Museum of Wales.
