Selected Poems
The Arches
By Frank Davey

This volume includes work selected from six of Frank Davey’s books of poetry—Weeds, Four Myths for Sam Perry, Griffon, Arcana, King of Swords and The Clallam—as well as the manuscript edition of his War Poems.

By Frank Davey

Born in Vancouver, Frank Davey attended the University of British Columbia where he was a co-founder of the avant-garde poetry magazine TISH. Since 1963, he has been the editor-publisher of the poetics journal Open Letter. In addition, he co-founded the world’s first on-line literary magazine, SwiftCurrent in 1984. Davey writes with a unique panache as he examines with humour and irony the ambiguous play of signs in contemporary culture, the popular stories that lie behind it, and the struggles between different identity-based groups in our globalizing society—racial, regional, gender-based, ethnic, economic—that drive this play.
