David Jones – author of In Parenthesis, the great epic poem of World War I – is increasingly recognised as a major voice in the first generation of British Modernist writers. Acclaimed by the likes of T.S. Eliot, W.B. Yeats and W.H. Auden, his writing was deeply informed by his Christian faith and Welsh upbringing.

This book makes available for the first time a number of previously unpublished writings by Jones that cast new light not only on Jones's own writing but on the political, religious and cultural engagements of British Modernism. Annotated throughout, with substantial commentaries exploring the historical and critical contexts of each text, the book includes Jones's controversial writings on Hitler and the rise of fascism in the 1930s, his writings on Gerard Manley Hopkins and the transcript of an unpublished interview with Jones himself. Taken together, these unpublished writings give students and scholars alike new insights into the influences and assumptions of early 20th-century British literary culture.
