In Parenthesis, based on Jones’s experiences in World War I, was published in 1937, followed in 1952 by another, even more unclassifiable but indubitably major work, The Anathémata. The Sleeping Lord, fragments from an unfinished larger composition about the crucifixion, appeared in the last year of his life. David Jones’s drawings and paintings can be found in the collections of the Tate Museum, the Whitworth Gallery, Manchester, and the National Museum of Wales. Merwin was born in New York City in 1927 and grew up in Union City, New Jersey, and in Scranton, Pennsylvania

out of the vortex, rifling the air it came - bright brass-shod, Pandoran; with all air-filling screaming the howling crescendo's up-piling snapt.

In Parenthesis is an epic poem of the First World War by David Jones first published in England in 1937. Although Jones had been known solely as an engraver and painter prior to its publication, the poem won the Hawthornden Prize and the admiration of writers such as W. B. Yeats and T. S. Eliot.

David Jones and the Eucharist. It is perhaps best described in Malory, book iv, chapter - that the landscape spoke 'with a grimly voice'. I've quoted this at length because it shows the humanity and tenderness of Jones' approach, of how the maims, deep fears and pathetic jokes brought men into an enchanted place that nevertheless spoke with this 'grimly' voice.

"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 unforeseen death. And yet throughout he remains alert to the flashes of humanity that light up the wasteland of war.

David Jones served in the ranks of the Royal Welsh Fusiliers and survived two years service on the Western Front. These experiences form the inspiration for his magnum opus. Written for those men with whom he served, Jones's poem follows a section of fusiliers in their first six months on the line, culminating in the 38th Welsh Division's attack at Mametz Wood in the second week of the Somme Offensive. Within, Jones imbues his poetry with a vast menagerie of traditions - invoking the Welsh bards Aneirin and Taliesin, and the tales of Arthur and of Roland. This, some have said, tends to make light of the events portrayed, glorifying war, but this is not so, for Jones does not belittle the struggle and death of these men, rather he elevates them to warriors who're in need of a bard to sing of their loss and deeds. This very much stands in the guise of the likes of Homer, but to think of this as an Iliad for WW1 would be a misplaced characterization. It is grand in cold hard reality; the Western Front, the monotony and harshness of trench life masterfully realized by Jones, whose words demand of the reader something more then mere perusal of the eyes. If a layman seeks a inkling of understanding of the trenches then this is most certainly the work for it. This is not a memoir, however, but a lyrical masterpiece of verse and prose, too often overlooked. This is the English language molded purposeful, arguably the finest piece of war literature to come from that most insatiable of slaughters we call World War One.
Wild Python
David Jones is a much-overlooked Welsh author, admired by Yeats and many others, whose record of his experiences in the Great War - 'In Parenthesis' - is as much poetry as reportage.
MegaStar
World War I poet David Jones, a magnificent artist and writer, tells of his experience at Somme in this long poem. Jones is Welsh, a fusilier, and now a more or less forgotten poet. I recommend his work.
Drelalen
Absolute classic of the Great War. To be consumed a few pages at a time, so rich it is.
Adrietius
An amazing World War I epic poem I had never known about despite years off studying poetry. Dense, complex, highly literary, but also pungently evocative, intimate, and sensual portrayal of war in the trenches, and the people who lived and died there.
Manemanu
Much more than a war memoir. A literary treatment of an appalling personal experience. Difficult reading, but required.
Xal
This is really such a deeply wonderful.book different he made art out the great war
Best book I've ever read about WW1. The lyricism is non-stop, regardless of the boredom of soldiers about to be slaughtered.
