David Jones, Coleridge & The Rime of The Ancient Mariner
An illustrated lecture
by Prof. Tom Dilworth, University of Windsor, Canada
The artist and poet David Jones (1895-1974) considered The Rime of the Ancient Mariner to be 'one of the great achievements of English poetry, and not only great but unique'.
In 1929 Jones made copper engravings for an illustrated edition of the poem, and these prints are displayed in the National Museum of Wales, Cardiff this summer as a response to the Coleridge in Wales festival.
We are delighted that leading international authority on David Jones, Prof. Tom Dilworth has offered to give this illustrated lecture as part of the Coleridge in Wales journey, in association with Aberystwyth University's David Jones Centre.
Discover how the illustrations by David Jones give fresh insight into the structure and interpretation of Rime of The Ancient Mariner.
