Unmoored in time …

 A Holy Man In Harrow | Standpoint. (Hat tip, Dave Lull.)

Dilworth, a Professor of English, has been writing on Jones for 40 years. He is an expert teaser of meaning from Jones’s elusive, allusive art. The poet once said that he was going to start signing his letters “The not understood D.J.” He wouldn’t have liked dumbing down or making history “accessible”.
