ANNUAL BEAUFOREST LECTURE, DAVID JONES: ARTIST AND POET IN THE SHADOW OF THE GREAT WAR

With Paul Hills, Professor Emeritus, The Courtauld Institute of Art.

Long service as a private on the Western Front shaped David Jones’s historical imagination and religious beliefs. His epic poem In Parenthesis is recognised as a classic. Contrasting his role with that of Paul Nash, this lecture will explain the unexpected ways in which Jones responded in word and image to the new world of technics ushered in by modern warfare.
