Description

Poetry. Translated from the Greek by a series of translators. Greece for the past century has given the world some of its finest poetry. Nanos Valaortis and Thanasis Maskaleris--distinguished poets, critics, and the anthology's principal translators--provide new translations of works by Constantine P. Cavafy, perhaps the greatest of all the Greek modernists; Nobel Prize winner Odysseus Elytris; and Nobel Prize winner George Seferis as well as works by such celebrated writers as Yannis Ritsos, Angelos Sikelianos, and almost a hundred others. No anthology of Greek poetry is as encompassing and commanding. The editors and their translators provide generous selections not only from internationally celebrated poets but also from younger writers who are beginning to play key roles in the literary world today.show more
