Description - Belonging by Dick Davis
'How suitable that Dick Davis, who gave us superb English versions of medieval Persian epigrams, should now compose witty, shapely, and polished epigrams that exhibit something like Philip Larkin's mordancy, but with a fine blend of thoughtfulness and levity that is Mr Davis' own. Yet beyond or in addition to these crisp works we are given a handful of very moving and eloquent poems...[that] lend immense depth and strength to this uncommonly glittering collection' - Anthony Hecht.
