Peter Davidson

Biography

Summary

Professor of Renaissance Studies at the University of Aberdeen for many years, Peter Davidson's scholarly interests in the baroque and the symbolic are reflected in his poetry. The works collected in his The Palace of Oblivion have been described as acts in 'time-travelling, unearthing closed treasures locked away in history's archives', though ones which nevertheless possess an allegorical significance in the present day.
