    1. When one thinks of the well-regarded poet-soldiers of World War I one thinks first of Wilfred Owen, Siegfried Sassoon, and Robert Graves. Not as frequently mentioned is David Jones, who many consider the best of the poets to come out of the war and whose verse-novel In Parenthesis most think is the finest work written about the war.Thomas Dilforth's superlative biography, David Jones in the Great War, covers the period of Jones's wartime service and how it influenced his post-war life and art.
