A garland of many years by Donald Davie( Book )

3 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 109 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The poems gathered here were composed by Donald Davie for his wife Doreen, to whom he was married and devoted for fifty years. The earliest of them were copied out by hand and presented to Doreen as a tribute on the occasion of her 54th birthday, and this "garland" was then added to over the years. Of the 43 poems, ten are published here for the first time, two others in new versions. They span the five decades of the couple's marriage, and because of this portray an enduring but complex relationship as it changes over time."
Ezra Pound by Donald Davie( Book )

3 editions published in 1976 in English and held by 85 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ezra Pound is a continuing controversy -- and to many readers a dauntingly difficult and complex writer. But the author here approaches his life and work with a clear-eyed and sympathetic understanding of the poetic riches to be unlocked, and with a great teacher's gift for bringing the treasures into the light. His loving analysis of Pound's extraordinary poetry, his understanding of the background to Pound's peculiar political and social stances, his wise perceptions of how Pound relates to the whole of twentieth-century literature and life -- these are all elements in a truly masterful study and an important contribution to Pound studies
