*  Denis Donoghue reviews 'Selected Poems' by Donald Davie, 'Collected Poems' by Allen Ginsberg, 'Instant Chronicles' by D.J....
and the carefully withheld preposition in the repeated phrase are effective, but the effect is self-consciously sought. Indeed, the title-poem of Davie's In the Stopping Train plays with motifs of stopping and starting, not as a play of mind or an act of 'the mind turned outwards', but as a self-soliciting process for which f - gg - g is the best analogy.. In another poet, this wouldn't matter: it would be accommodated by a more genial rhetoric. But in Davie's poems there is a worrying incongruity between the claims incessantly made - notably to 'enlightened but still common sense' - and the insecurity of judgment which finds claiming necessary. In his best poems, as in 'Remembering the Thirties' and most of The Forests of Lithuania, there is already a sufficiently dogged body of lore or prejudice which he can point to, such that the poetry becomes his particular sense of it, and of his distancing himself from it. His weakest poems are those, as in The Shires, in which there is no obstacle to ...
