David Solway (born 8 December 1941) is a Canadian poet, educational theorist, travel writer and literary critic of Jewish descent.
He is a member of the Jubilate Circle and formerly a teacher of English Literature at John Abbott College. He has spent most of his life in the Montreal area and now lives in Hudson, Quebec.
Solway is known for his work both as a poet, essayist and as a teacher, as well as for his polemical outspokenness, especially in opposition to Islam and in defense of Zionism, George W. Bush and the war on terror. He has contributed political commentary to the conservative websites WorldNetDaily and PJ Media.
For inspiration, he invented a Greek poet named Andreas Karavis as a heteronym, whose work he published in apparent translation.
