Βαθιά τραγική ποίηση με φιλοσοφικές προεκτάσεις, σκηνικό θεατρικό, λανθάνουσα ειρωνεία, υποβλητική ατμόσφαιρα, αυτοσαρκασμός, αίσθηση τραγικότητας και αδιεξόδου! Η Καβαφική ποίηση είναι επίκαιρη και διαχρονική - το καταφύγιο του σύγχρονου δοκιμαζόμενου ανθρώπου τόσο από τις εξωτερικές καταστάσεις όσο και από τα εσωτερικά εμπόδια που στήνουν "τείχη" και απομακρύνουν από την Ιθάκη...

Recommends it for: any free thinker...thankfully more Christians are thinking too!
Recommended to Wayne by: One of my Greek female students gave me my first book of Cavafy's poems.
I bought this for a friend a couple of weeks ago.

THEN realised it was MUCH more suited to.....ME !!!!!

After ALL...
I love poetry - Cavafy's too;

I write poetry - Cavafy helped me find my 'voice'(simple and straightforward)...as did John Donne(conversational).

I love Greece - worked there, loved there, grew there

I love philosophy - the first philosophers I studied were the Ancient Greeks; and when I wrote poetry they soon made an appearance ...Heraclitus especially; and Zeno. Both fond of paradox.

Before you, reader, is the best translation of Cavafy's poetry. While Daniel Mendelsohn's translations are commendable—fantastic by any measure—they lack the language of Cavafy's original Greek poems, which I am blended ancient/attic language with the conventions of Greek epic and modern Alexandrian Greek. I'm not sure what that might sound like in English—probably the way this translation renders it, I would assume. And while I'm rarely a fan of dual-text publications, having the Modern Greek n ...more

I enjoyed Cavafy's poems of Alexandria, of Greek and Hellenistic and medieval Eastern Mediterranean history, of erudite penury. I cannot approve his homosexuality, so transparently and self-professedly destructive to himself and the objects of his affection, but there is powerful imagery and verse here too. I know Classical Greek, which is enough to appreciate some of the modern Greek of the original, printed on facing pages to the English translation. I hope to turn my efforts at calligraphy to ...more

I know Cavafy is known for being one of greatest. Nonetheless, I have to admit I found it particularly difficult to go through with the book.

Maybe I did not find in it what I would expect from a poem book. Most of the poems read like plain text. I guess being able to read them in their original language would make a difference.

The poems are mostly about ancient Greek history, with some exceptions (when the authors describe the different ages of his own life).

I could see that there is beauty behi

cavafy: an old man in alexandria who is able in his poems (and in the mind of his avid reader too) to recreate the passion and potency of his youth and to be, actually be, that man again.

one of the greats.

Πέρα από μερικά ποιήματα, μετρημένα στα δάχτυλά, με προμετωπίδα όλων την Ιθάκη, δεν μπόρεσα να πολυκαταλάβω τα innuendo που χρησιμοποιούσε ούτε το ιστορικά ούτε τα μυθικά. Δεν με πολυενθουσίασε.

Τα Άπαντα του Καβάφη, αναγνωρισμένα και αποκηρυγμένα δεν είναι ένα έργο που αφήνεις πίσω, σε συνοδεύει. Προσωπικά, δεν τρέφω καμιά εκτίμηση στην ποίηση, είναι η μοναδική εξαίρεση ως τώρα.

Poetry to go back to... again and again...
Nick Argiriou
Ψιλοαπογοητεύτηκα μάλλον με τον Καβάφη, ο οποίος μεν είναι άριστος στον λόγο, αλλά η θεματολογία του μου είναι λίγο αδιάφορη, ίσως έχει ξεπεραστεί ή δεν είναι η δική μου. Μερικά ποιήματα είναι πράγματι αριστουργήματα. Συστήνω να μείνουμε σε αυτά που είναι γνωστά και τα ξέρουμε.
David  Ioan
Ideea fatalității, ciocnirile și tresăltarile iubirii, dragostea de viață sunt doar cîteva din temele operei lui Kavafis. Împinzită de influențele marilor clasici antici (Homer, Mimnerm, Calimah, Horatius), poezia kavafiană emană dulcele parfum al vremurilor stravechi cînd echilibrul, frumusețea și pasiunile stăpîneau viețile oamenilor. Aproape ca un rapsod, Kavafis cîntă o epocă lipsită de prejudecățile și convențiile zilelor moderne. Aceste caracteristici fac ca el să nu aparțină veacului său. ...more

His consciously individual style earned him a place among the most important figures not only in Greek poetry, but in Western poetry as well. He has been called a skeptic and a neo-pagan.
