‎To visit Greece according to T.S. Eliot, is to arrive where we started and know the place for the first time. Poetry written in Greek constitutes the longest uninterrupted literary tradition in the Western world. It is Greek poetry that has given the world the various poetic genres in which Westerners have expressed their emotions and many of their noblest thoughts to the present day. In this book, the reader is invited to discover Greece through its poetry, and to enter into the world from which have emerged those ideals of democracy, reason, and freedom that remain at the core of any civilization that hopes to endure. This invitation is extended in the form of words and images: in English-language selections from the ancient epic poems of the Iliad and the Odyssey, in the lyric poetry of Sappho, in the dramatic power to Prometheus; in poetry from the Byzantine era; in words that flow from the pens of modern Greek poets Solomos, Cavafy, Kazantzakis, Ritsos, and the Nobel Laureates, Seferis and Elytis joined by the voices of poets who have written in English about Greece, Greek life and tradition Lord Byron, Shelley, Keats, Milton, Wilde, Durrell. The ninety-eight illustrations span the rich visual history of Greece. Vase paintings and friezes, mosaics and icons, modern drawings and paintings, as well as photographs of Greece's vibrant landscape and indomitable people reinforce the power and poignancy of each selection from Greece in Poetry. ‎
