David Jones: Engraver, Soldier, Painter, Poet
Tue 25 April 2017, 19:00 – 20:30 BST
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 will discuss Jones's life and work with the book's editor and publisher, Robin Robertson, and the evening will be chaired by writer and journalist Rachel Cooke.
