Description: London's Sunday Times wrote that Davies' work is in "(A) style reminiscent of Elizabeth Bishop". Her interrogations of faith and friendship bring to life, in a language strikingly rooted in the physical world, spiritual concerns that span centuries. There is a moral seriousness in these poems which confronts doubt and fear, and survival itself, asserting at all times an unsentimental belief in the redemptive power of the human capacity to love. This is particularly so in the two main sequences, which re-create the lives of cave dwellers in prehistoric France, and the doomed love affair of Abelard and Heloise. Davies was the former Chair of Britain's Poetry Society.
