A Trick of Sunlight: Poems 2001-2005
By: Dick Davis (author)Paperback
Dick Davis' seventh collection contains poems as intelligent and graceful as ever A- and as immediate in their impact, as rewarding when savoured at leisure. Their complexities engage rather than bemuse the reader as Davis addresses subjects as various as growing older, love's vagaries, clashes of culture, characters from history, the illuminations of art A- and the idea of happiness.
Dick Davis was born in Portsmouth, England. He is a professor of Persian at Ohio State University. He has published translations of prose from Italian and poetry and prose from Persian, and six books of his own poetry. His previous collection, Belonging, was chosen by The Economist as a Book of the Year for 2002.
