Jonathan Davidson is fascinated by how poetry is found and how it is heard. In On Poetry, he traces his own development as a listener and reader of poetry through a period of over fifty years.


From attentive close readings to thoughts of how poems might best be shared, his belief in poetry and its ability to touch and transform us shines throughout. This small book is a gem and any reader interested in poetry and how it can enrich our lives will find Davidson a fine companion - Liz Berry

Jonathan Davidson was born in 1964. He won an Eric Gregory Award in 1990 and has published two collections of poetry, most recently Early Train (smith|doorstop, 2011). He is a poetry-theatre producer and has had eight radio dramas broadcast on BBC Radio 3 and 4. He lives in the Midlands.
