Format: Paperback
In the panorama of twentieth century poetry, Cavafis' work - presented here with an introduction by Auden (cf. also this poet's great work in Collected Auden, or Selected Poems, et al.) - occupies a special place. Dark, lonely to the limit of self-segregation, but at the same time attracted by the Mediterranean vitality and openness, the neo-Hellenic poet refuses en block every aspect of his time, diving instead, with constant wonder, into the suggestions of mythological legends and ancient history.

The result of this literary 'operation' is the continuous, desperate search for a mysterious and elusive Beauty, an evocation of hidden moments and loves sung now with violently sensual accents, now with heartfelt and nostalgic tones, mixed with a tragic vision of history as eternal struggle between men and destiny.

A truly beautiful and melancholy book.
