N2 - In essays and correspondence, as well as in his poetry, David Jones continued to return to the image of the Anglo-Saxon ‘Dreaming Tree’ as he meditated upon the central image of the Catholic Church and of the liturgy, that of the Passion. This article explores David Jones’s interest in the tenth-century Vercelli Book poem The Dream of the Rood and its wider tradition, and brings new knowledge from Early Medieval English Studies to bear on Jones’s late modernist poem, The Anathemata (1952).
