Description: This anthology is composed of recently revised translations selected from the five volumes of work by major poets of modern Greece offered by Edmund Keeley and Philip Sherrard during the past two decades. The poems chosen are those that translate most successfully into English and that are also representative of the best work of the original poets. C. P. Cavafy and Angelos Sikelianos are major poets of the first half of the twentieth century. George Seferis and Odysseus Elytis, who followed them, both won the Nobel Prize in literature. Nikos Gatsos is a very popular translator, lyricist, and critic.

Constantine Cavafy, one of the most prominent Greek poets, was born on April 29, 1863, in Alexandria, Egypt. After his father's death in 1872, Cavafy was taken to England for five years. After living in Istanbul, Cavafy returned to Alexandria, where he spent the rest of his life. In Alexandria, Cavafy worked as a civil servant. When he was 41, Cavafy's first book was privately published. Five years later the book was reissued with an additional seven poems. Cavafy published no other work in his lifetime. Cavafy died in 1933, on his birthday, at the age of 70.
