James Michie /ˈmɪki/ (1927–2007) was a British poet and translator of Latin poets, including The Odes of Horace, The Poems of Catullus, and The Epigrams of Martial. He was director of the Bodley Head Ltd., a British publishing company, and lecturer at London University. His Collected Poems won the 1995 Hawthornden Prize.
He caused controversy in 2004 when his poem, Friendly Fire, was published in The Spectator (under then editor Boris Johnson). The poem, purporting to be satirical, was a scathing attack on Scotland and the Scottish people from the perspective of an Englishman.
