UWindsor English professor Tom Dilworth’s masterwork, David Jones: Engraver, Soldier, Painter, Poet, has been shortlisted for the 2018 Wales Book of the Year Award. It is one of three in contention in the creative non-fiction category.
Dr. Dilworth travelled to Aberystwyth, Wales, in April 2017 during the British launch of his book.
As a poet, visual artist, and essayist, David Jones was one of the great modernists. An extraordinary engraver, painter, and creator of painted inscriptions, he also belongs in the first rank of 20th-century poets.
Administered by Literature Wales, the Wales Book of the Year Award recognizes works of creative writing and literary criticism in three categories: poetry, fiction, and creative non-fiction. Winners will be announced at an award ceremony in Cardiff on June 26.
