Pretending to be asleep; poems by Peter Davison( Book )
5 editions published between 1969 and 1971 in English and held by 291 libraries worldwide
Mr. Davison's third collection--brief cerebral poems mainly dealing with the ""outrage and the dread"" of death in life. Davison's man of straw, the ""Plausible Man, "" taking shape from circumstances and social confluence, casts no shadow, and it is this non-existence of contemporary man that the poet attempts to exorcise as ""life stiffens and keeps its distance."" Davison's verse itself--with a kind of Midtown urbanity--also keeps a careful distance from the gutsy, rampaging line and experimentation of most new poetry. No vanguard poetry reader will stand for: ""It shuns me now that sometimes did me seek, "" even as a quip. However, there are those who like their poetry cool, mildly stimulating and not particularly involving
The poems of Peter Davison, 1957-1995 by Peter Davison( Book )
2 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 263 libraries worldwide
The poetry of Peter Davison, of which this is the ninth volume, covers a broad range of subject matter. Musical and supple, with rewards for the eye, the ear, and the mind, concerned as much with country as with city matters, Davison's poems move past personality. They open questions of identity, explorations of the natural world, personal and religious conflict, and the mysterious workings of memory. His poetry, such as the long poem "The Great Ledge," is especially moving and powerful when read aloud. This volume, combining Davison's most recent work with all the earlier poems he wishes to preserve, reveals a poet in his late middle age writing out of the midst of a life both active and contemplative, yet given over to poetry. He is a worthy heir to the passionate poetic tradition of Thomas Hardy and Robert Frost
Mary Magdalene the hidden apostle ( visu )
1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 101 libraries worldwide
The first person to whom Jesus appeared after his resurrection has been the victim of misrepresentation. Mary Magdalene was not a prostitute. Rather, she, was a woman of wealth whose financial support was crucial to the early survival of Christianity. The special relationship she had with Christ led to resentment among the other disciples, and her reputation was tarnished as a result. Drawing on ancient texts, rare art and research, this far-reaching portrait compares the evidence we have with the stories we have heard. She was a disciple who believed in the word of the Lord long before many others

Breathing room : new poems by Peter Davison( Book )
5 editions published between 2000 and 2013 in English and held by 22 libraries worldwide
Many of the lively poems in this collection map the temporal location of elderhood -- the frustrating, miraculous senescence of a body and mind self-aware with a whole lived life. Davison creates with words the space for an idea to "breathe" in the mind of the reader -- words written with one eye on death's inevitable finale. This is a poetry deeply concerned with the word as a physical product of mind, mouth and air. The lucid phrasing and rhythms linger. Davison urges us to commit these poems to memory
