Modern Greek Poetry
Browse by tag
For the month of June, Holy Cross Bookstore is offering four collections of poems at substantial discounts. Three are translated works of major twentieth-century Greek poets: Yannis Ritsos, G. Verites (Alexandros Gialas), and Nikiforos Vrettakos. The fourth, by Robert Zaller (co-translator of the Vrettakos collection and still active as a poet, critic, and historian), takes its inspiration from the islands of Greece. All of these books richly reward any reader with an interest in modern poetry and make fine gifts.
