Love in Another Language: Collected Poems and Selected Translations

Dick Davis

Carcanet Collection  

 

In Love in Another Language Dick Davis is shown to be the outstanding formal poet of his generation, a master of rhyme and metre, a poet worthy of keeping company with the best lyric writers in our tradition. His Collected Poems draws on eight previous publications and includes a section of new work. Davis has also established himself as ‘the leading translator of Persian literature in our time’ (Washington Post) and this volume includes a selection of his celebrated translations.





Davis’s original poems evoke the experiences of travel and of living in a culture in which one is a stranger, where empathy is at once difficult and necessary. His translations can be read as a record of his attempts at such empathy, in poetic terms, across centuries and cultures.
