David Whyte

David Whyte is a poet, author, and lecturer who has a readership in three normally mutually exclusive areas: the literate world of readings, the psychological and theological worlds of philosophical inquiry, and the world of vocation, work, and leadership. He holds a degree in marine zoology and an honorary doctorate, and is an associate fellow at Said Business School at the University of Oxford. The author of seven books of poetry and three books of prose, David has worked as a naturalist guide and has led anthropological and natural-history expeditions.
