In Making the Past Present, Paul Robichaud offers an innovative exploration of Jones' poetry that aims to help readers overcome challenges to a fuller appreciation of his work. A persistent challenge for readers has been Jones' turn to the Middle Ages for inspiration and example. This book explores the significance of Jones' medievalism in its modernist contexts, while providing readers with detailed information on central, but often unfamiliar, allusions. This study shows how Jones engaged with contemporary Welsh and Arthurian scholarship to construct a vision of Wales that is both a modernist symbol of cultural wholeness and an imagined community in tandem with the development of Welsh cultural nationalism. The impact of medieval on modernist aesthetics receives a sustained analysis in a reading of Jones in relation to James Joyce, Jacques Maritain, and Wilhelm Worringer.
