Princeton. 1972. Princeton University Press. 1st American Edition Of This Translation. Small Tear Mark Near The Top Spine, Otherwise Very Good In Wrappers. 98 pages. paperback. 0691013041. Translated from the Greek & With An Introduction by Edmund Keeley & Philip Sherrard. keywords: Poetry Greece Translated Literature. inventory # 37505. FROM THE PUBLISHER - C. P. Cavafy (1863-1933) is now considered by many to be the most original and influential Greek poet of the 20th century. The qualities of his poetry that were unfashionable during his lifetime are the very ones that make his work endure: his sparing use of metaphor; his evocation of spoken rhythms and colloqilia1isms; his use of epigrammatic and dramatic modes; his aesthetic perfectionism; his frank treatment of homosexual themes; his brilliantly alive sense of history; and his commitment to Hellenism, coupled with an astute cynicism about politics. The translations in SELECTED POEMS are completely new. Realizing that Cavafy's language is closer to the spoken idiom than that of other leading Greek poets of his time, and that earlier translations have failed to capture the immediate, colloquial qualities of Cavafy's voice, Edmund Keeley and Philip Sherrard have rendered his most significant and characteristic poems in a style and rhythm as natural and apt in English as the poet's is in Greek. Constantine Petrou Cavafy, widely recognized as the greatest of modern Greek poets, was born in Alexandria in 1863 into a family originally from Constantinople. After some childhood years spent in England and a stay in Constantinople in the early 1880s, he lived his entire life in Alexandria. It was there that he would write and (for the most part) self-publish the poems for which he became known, working all the while as a clerk in the Irrigation Office of the Egyptian government. His poetry was first brought to the attention of the English-speaking public in 1919 by E. M. Forster, whom he had met during the First World War. Cavafy died in Alexandria on April 29, 1933, his seventieth birthday; the first commercially published collection of his work appeared posthumously, in Alexandria, in 1935. EDMUND KEELEY is Professor of English and Creative Arts and Director of the Program in Creative Writing and Theatre, Princeton University. PHILIP SHERRARD is a lecturer at King's College, University of London. ISBN: 0691013041.

Princeton University Press. 1972. Paperback. Very Good. A clean softcover, no markings throughout, NOT an ex-lib book. " I have been led into an exploration of the way the social form of Elizabethan holidays contributed to the dramatic form of festive comedy. To relate this drama to holiday has proved to be the most effective way to describe its character. And this historical interplay between social and artistic form has an interest of its own: we can see here, with more clarity of outline and detail than is usually possible, how art develops underlying configurations in the social life of a culture."--C. L. Barber, in the Introduction, Princeton University Press, 1972
