Quick Reference


poet and artist. He served in the trenches throughout the First World War, which left him with a lifelong interest in warfare and soldiers. In 1921 he became a Roman Catholic and in 1922 began a long association with Gill. He preferred that his work in engraving, water‐colour, and drawing should be intimately combined with his own writing, or the writing of others. The Welsh Mabinogion, the ‘matter of Britain’ (centring on King Arthur), and the Bible provided much of the material and the background for his poetry. In Parenthesis (1937) was an epic work of mixed poetry and prose on the subject of war. The Anathemata (1952) is a long, complex work of poetry and prose, celebrating in richly allusive language the ancient ‘matter of Britain’; The Sleeping Lord (1974) is a collection of complete fragments of a projected work centred on the Crucifixion, and the lives of Roman soldiers at the time.
