Overview

Donald Davie: Collected Poems by Donald Davie

Political and protesting, these poems explore concepts of modernity, English identity, and historicity. Influenced by the Russians and Ezra Pound, Davie reinterprets Modernism for a 1940s world. Obsessed with the tonalities and vernacular of language, Davie works in the mediums of essay-poem, love lyric, satire, translation, epistle, eclogue, and other forms.

Donald Davie (1922–1995) was a professor of English at Essex, Stanford, and Vanderbilt. His other published works include Under Briggflatts; Slavic Excursions; Studies in Ezra Pound; Older Masters; Church, Chapel, and the Unitarian Conspiracy; Poems and Melodramas; and Purity of Diction & Articulate Energy.
