“some consolation for a woman”Posted: January 13, 2018
Ian Jones is the creator of this illustration of a line from Penelope, the last episode of Joyce’s Ulysses. When Ian moved to Margate a few years ago – that’s Margate in Kent, not Molly’s Margate in Gibraltar – he discovered T.S. Eliot’s association with the resort. He, Eliot, began writing The Waste Land in a beach shelter on the Margate seafront.
Ian started an Eliot reading group and produced a series of calendars with each month incorporating a photo-montage with a line from Eliot’s works. Ian is also involved in the forthcoming Waste Land exhibition in the Turner Contemporary in Margate, and his art work will be on display. The exhibition runs from February 3rd to May 7th, 2018.
