DAVIDSON, DONALD (1893-1968) Donald Davidson is the third member, with John Crowe ransom and Allen tate, of the tripartite leadership of the literary group known as the southern FUGITIVES/ agrarians. Although Davidson is perhaps the least known of this group of poet-critics, he was a vital force in the development of a body of poetry and a distinctive critical vision that sought to incorporate Anglo-Saxon and southern traditions within a modern context.

Born in Campbellsville, Tennessee, Davidson entered Vanderbilt University in 1909, eventually earning a master's degree and becoming a literature professor. At Vanderbilt he became part of a coterie that formed the southern Fugitives and, between 1922 and 1925, published an influential literary magazine called the Fugitive. His works of poetry include The Outland Piper (1924), The Tall Men (1927), and Lee in the Mountains and Other Poems (1938).
