An Andreas Karavis Companion

Drawing on his friendship with Karavis, David Solway has leavened the critical commentary and biographical background with a selection of letters and extracts from the notebooks of this enigmatic Greek poet. The book includes never-before published new poems Karavis has sent to Solway.rnrnThe works and days of Andreas Karavis together constitute a rare phenomenon in the cultural life of comtemporary Greece. A poet who was largely unknown until the late eighties, working indefatigably but in almost total obscurity from youth to later middle age, he suddenly finds himself in the public eye as a powerful but enigmatic presence … yet his life remains an almost impenetrable secret.
