"People are talking about the Internet as though it is going to change the world. It's not going to change the world. It's not going to change the way we think, and it's not going to change the way we feel." -- Peter Davison
Peter Davison (June 27, 1928, New York, New York - December 29, 2004, Boston, Massachusetts) was an American poet, essayist, teacher, lecturer, editor, and publisher.

Davison worked as an editor at the Atlantic Monthly Press and Houghton Mifflin. He was also poetry editor for Atlantic Monthly. He was part of a literary milieu that included Robert Lowell, Robert Frost, Anne Sexton, Sylvia Plath, Richard Wilbur, and Donald Hall.

In 1963, his first collection of poetry, Breaking of the Day, won the Yale Series of Younger Poets Competition for publication by Yale University Press; the judge was Dudley Fitts.

Breathing Room (2000) won the Massachusetts Book Award.

Among the authors Davison edited were Ward Just, Farley Mowat, William Least Heat-Moon, and Robert Coles.
