The Collected Poems of C.P. Cavafy: A New Translation

Author(s): Constantine P. Cavafy

Poetry

C. P. Cavafy (1863-1933) wrote some of the most powerful poems in world literature. His work uncannily translates history, the record of the many, into an individual personal document. He draws on the spectrum of Greek poetic tradition to write wickedly satirical yet internal poetry, whether his speaker is a spoiled rich boy planning to enter politics or a poor, ostracized, pure young man destroyed by poverty and priggish social mores.
