Lookup NU author(s): Professor Sinéad Morrissey


Full text for this publication is not currently held within this repository. Alternative links are provided below where available.


This new selection of Donald Davie's poems spans six decades. It traces his protean trajectory from austere beginnings to riskier dislocations of shape and syntax, through to his extended late-meditations on form, content, and spirit. To apply his own critical definition of syntax, his is a poetic of articulate energy, the restless redistribution of force – an abiding resource and inspiration.
