Saracen Island by David Solway

332

Andreas Karavis has been called Greece’s modern Homer. He was born in 1932. His first book, White Poems, appeared in 1965. This is the first time that his work has appeared in English, except for a poem in the Atlantic Monthly in 1999 and, in the same year, a selection of poems which appeared with a feature article and interview in Books in Canada.

The title poem, generally considered to be Karavis’ signature work, is included in almost every recent anthology and is a staple in university courses.

Introduced and translated from the Greek by David Solway.
