Am y llyfr

Arweiniad i gerddi David Jones. Yr oedd meistri fel Eliot ac Auden yn ei weld fel un o'r modernwyr mwyaf, fel arlunydd a bardd, ond yn aml beirniadywd ei gerddi am fod yn rhy astrus oherwydd y cyfeiriadau anarferol a gwreiddiol. Ystyrir y cerddi yn ôl y drefn y'u cyfansoddwyd ynghyd â sylwadau gan yr awdur.


'The significance of Dilworth's volume is that it is directed specifically towards the non-specialist. He 'narrates' and explicates Jones's published poems and sequences, carefully elucidating those elements which commonly cause the first-time reader the most bafflement, and he intelligently examines the complex themes and ideas of the poems ... Dilworth manages to write an introductory work that is accessible to the non-specialist and specialist alike.' Dr G. J. DownesA"Thomas Dilworth has written an enormously learned and detailed book. In every page it displays years of dedicated reading and study, and an openness to share the insights of others. Reading David Jones is also remarkably unpretentious and free of unnecessary jargon. "Fernando Cervantes, The Tablet, July 2008 'Dilworth is capable, patient, hugely knowledgeable and always informative; and any reader of Jones will benefit from the identification of new sources, references, allusions and facts.' Neil Corcoran, The Review of English Studies, Vol. 60, No. 245
