  • David Jones, Companion of Honour (1er novembre 1895 – 28 octobre 1974), est à la fois un artiste plastique et l'un des plus importants poètes modernistes britanniques de la première génération. Son œuvre reçoit l'influence à la fois de son origine galloise et de son éducation catholique. T. S. Eliot le considérait comme un écrivain de premier plan, et son The Anathema (L'Anathème) était considéré par W. H. Auden comme le plus important long poème de langue anglaise du XXe siècle.
