      Allan D. Dowling, poet, author, publisher, librettist and film producer, died in London on Wednesday. He was 79 years old. Mr. Dowling, who was born in New York City on July 4, 1903, first published his poetry at the age of 17. His many literary works include ''The Five Jewels'' (1948), ''A Poet's Youth (1944), ''The Land of Bupp'' (1945), ''Living in the Sum'' (1939) and ''In the Beginning Was the Myth'' (1968). In 1948, Mr. Dowling took over publication of the Partisan Review and continued to publish the monthly avant-garde literary magazine in the United States until 1953. In Hollywood, Mr. Dowling produced ''Donovan's Brain'' and ''Hunters of the Deep.'' In 1962, in collaboration with Georges Antheil, he wrote the libretto for the cantata ''Cabeza de Vaca,'' which was produced as a CBS-TV special that year. Mr. Dowling's most recent work was a libretto for ''Don Quichotte'' by Georg Philipp Telemann. It was commissioned and performed by the ancient music society at Tanglewood Music Festival in 1982. Mr. Dowling was active as a writer and philanthropist and was particularly involved in sponsoring young violinists who were pupils of his wife at the Menuhin School of Music, London.
