    An Introductory Guide to The Anathemata and The Sleeping Lord Sequence of David Jones. ca. Corrected typescript. Published by Sono Nis Press, Letters from David Jones to William Blissett. 13 A.L.S. Arranged chronologically. See appended itemized listing for details. Published in William Blissett's The long conversation.   David Jones survived the First World War but was horrified how it broke so greatly British culture from its deep past. "The Anathemata" is a brave if faulty attempt at excavating the material before all connection is lost. The introduction is s: 9.

    David Jones is regarded by many to be one of the great writers of the modern age. T.S. Eliot called "In Parenthesis" "a work of genius" and W.H. Auden wrote that "The Anathemata" "is probably the finest long poem written in English in this century"/5(1). A Commentary on "The Anathemata" of David Jones by Hague, Rene and a great selection of related books, art and collectibles available now at Anathemata, First Edition - AbeBooks Passion for books.

    Jones separated these fragments from the larger work and published them in a book titled The Sleeping Lord and other fragments (). In both The Roman Quarry and The Sleeping Lord volumes, ‘The Hunt’ is placed just before ‘The Sleeping Lord’. As a preface, ‘The Hunt’ may provide some reason why the lord is sleeping in the first place.   Drawing on new archival discoveries, this book presents an authoritative reconstruction of David Jones's The Grail Mass, the unfinished and unpublished project from which came both his masterpiece The Anathemata - a work described by W.H. Auden as 'one of the most important poems of our times' - and The Sleeping Lord and other fragments, his final collection.
