Donald Davie and Charles Tomlinson are both poets who sought to explore the wider possibilities of an English poetic. This work demonstrates how, in opposition to their Movement's perceived inwardness, Davie and Tomlinson continued to explore the legacies of international modernism. Both Donald Davie and Charles Tomlinson were attracted by the multivocalism of Pound. Revisiting the Poundian wing of modernism, they became interested in the Black Mountain Poets and the Objectivists. William Carlos Williams, another transatlantic poet, became a major influence on Tomlinson and this is demonstrated in this book. The study provides a series of close readings. I have paid special attention to Davie's long, generally neglected, poems: "A Sequence to Francis Parkman" (1961), the "Six Epistles to Eva Hesse" (1970) and "Three for Water Music" (1981). The poems in question also reveal the increasing importance of Davie as a Christian poet. In Tomlinson's case, I trace a development from "A Peopled Landscape" (1963), through to "American Scenes" (1966) and "Notes from New York" (1984). The final chapter of this book concentrates on more recent poetry, including "Skywriting" (2003). In particular, I have sought to demonstrate the significance of Tomlinson's 'Ligurian' poems. Both Davie and Tomlinson pay special heed to how the writing reveals a 'journeying aesthetic'. Hence, their poetry explores place, frontiers and the overlap of poetic cultures.
