KIRKUS REVIEW

 Much previously unknown material by British poet-artist David Jones is revealed in this large and attractive volume. Art scholars Miles and Shiel call him the ``odd man out''--a man of many styles in an era of abstraction, a religious artist in a century of increasing secularism, But they make a case for his importance, illustrated by works on range of themes, including dreamy landscapes painted in a time of coming war; sexuality depicted in dense oil painting as well as in the ligihter but more complex illustrations of the tale of Lancelot and Guinevere.
