Abstract:
My thesis examines the ways in which David Jones was influenced by medieval literature and thought whilst composing his long poem, The Anathemata. Although several critics have acknowledged Jones's interest in medieval culture, none has analysed the full extent of the medieval contribution to the poem. My thesis suggests that it is far greater than has previously been thought, and has in fact determined the form and the overall structure of the poem.
