' In King Pellum's Land' A Welshman's Epic War Poem,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: In Parenthesis: Introduction by T.S.Eliot (Paperback)
No one can tell you how good this book is ,you have to read it , it is a tough read. King's Pellum land? One of the wonderful metaphors that Jones uses to add power to his work. Perhaps if one wishes to get a taster of this work it would be good to listen to the Poet himself ,reading an part of Book 3. Is available in the C.D. 'Artist Rifles' 1914-18.or download it alone.
It would indeed be very difficult to accurately decribe this work, with all its complexity, but this track will give a potential reader a way into the magic.
P.S. For the Purists -Jones was born and Bred in England, but at heart he was Welsh.
