An important presence in Welsh publishing and poetry, John Idris Jones’ new and selected poems, Accord, spans his writing from the 1960s to the present.

Place is important on this globe
of furrows with troughs of memory
following our plough. Everywhere
there are fragments.
A mound of earth will make a stone, or Caesar.

"That’s John Idris Jones – ploughing his lonely furrow, conveying subtle truths in simple language. Elsewhere he has written, ‘The sky is quiet with distant birds.’ Beat that."
Herbert Williams

"I marvel at some of Idris’s images... this is pure poetry, a pleasure to read and re-read."
Zulfikar Ghose

John Idris Jones was born and brought up at Llanrhaeadr-ym-Mochnant, where William Morgan translated the Bible into Welsh. He has worked as a teacher, as a lecturer in America and ran his own press, John Jones Publishing.
