Inhaltsangabe: The poetry of Odysseus Elytis has long been known and admired in English-speaking countries, largely through earlier short selections by the present editors. The international recognition which came to Elytis with the award of the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1979 makes this major representative selection, drawn from all periods of his distinguished career, especially valuable.
The book traces his development from early surrealism, in which he transforms the French influence into a distinct personal voice and mythology, through the new and dramatic style of `The Axion Esti' with its blend of spirituality and earthiness, up to his most recent work published during the 1970s in which he continues to experiment with new modes for expressing his perennial themes.
The poems are chosen and introduced by the leading translators of modern Greek poetry, Edmund Keeley and Philip Sherrard. Many new translations have been made specially for this book by the editors and by John Stathatos and Nanos Valaoritis.
Über den Autor: Odysseus Elytis was born in Greece in 1911. He studied law at the University of Athens. Since his first book of poems appeared in 1940, ten further volumes, three collections of essays, and translations from a wide range of modern writers (including Rimbaud, Genet, Mayakovsky, Lorca, Ungaretti and Brecht) have been published.
Edmund Keeley is Professor of English and Director of the Creative Writing Program at Princeton University. His translations with Philip Sherrard include the complete poems of Cavafy and Seferis, and a selection of Sikelianos. He received the Landon Translation Award from the Academy of American Poets for `Ritsos in Parentheses' (1979). He has published four novels.
Philip Sherrard lives in Greece. His other works include two books on modern Greek literary themes, `The Marble Threshing Floor' and `The Wound of Greece', and a critical study, `Yeats and the Search for Tradition'. He has published two collections of poetry.
