Your list has always been interesting, idiosyncratic, imaginative and your translations [...] have been a source of pleasure to me.

Books by this author: The True Traveller
  • About
  • W.H. Davies was popularly though reductively known as the ‘tramp-poet’ due to his remarkable journey from vagrancy, in Britain and the United States, to considerable literary success. ‘Discovered’ in part by Edward Thomas, who admired his poetry, Davies became a prolific memoirist and occasional writer of fiction, criticism and drama. He is now known almost exclusively for a handful of poems and for his memoir The Autobiography of a Super-Tramp; his other writing has long been out of print.
