Reading the Early Medieval Library with David Jones

Francesca Brooks

Oxford Textual Perspectives

  • Situates the work of David Jones within broader twentieth-century literary traditions, which turned to the early Middle Ages in their renegotiation of local and national identity
  • Brings together medieval and modernist studies
  • Includes archival research which has never been published before
  • Offers a fresh understanding Jones's of relationship to his Anglo-Welsh identity, medieval culture, and scholarship and opens up new ways of reading his poetry
