ABOUT THIS BOOK
Here Davie, a writer attuned to both the changes of the modern world and a living literary tradition, turns to the lapsed poetic practice of translation and imitation of the Psalms of David. The result is a series of poems that speak powerfully of moral indignation and spiritual discovery within the complex of modernity.

"Few modern poets have managed to achieve Donald Davie's sense of human worth."—Times Higher Educational Supplement
