The Sleeping Lord and Other Fragments
Faber & Faber, 1995 - 111 pages
These poems, assembled shortly before the author's death in 1974, are all set in parts of the Roman Empire, either in the Holy Land or on the Celtic fringes. They are animated by David Jones's Catholic faith and by his own experiences as a soldier.
