The tiller of the times

ByConnie Stamos

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
Enlarged paperback edition of modern Greek poetry, English translation only. Includes translator's notes and 2 appendices explaining mythological and historical references. Glossy colour cover / black and white interior. What is the connection between ancient Greek culture, folk lore, history and the long-suffering Greek citizen of today? The poet, a respected lawyer in the troubled EU state of Greece, opens a window for the reader into his inner world. He unfolds his ethics and aesthetics by exploring variations on three themes: a) Insights into moments that seem to be "frozen" in history; b) the musings of the modern-day philosopher; and c) the folk songs, history and lore of the poet's native Epirus. Poignant and evocative, this poetry (original text written in Greek by Augerinos Andreou, English translation by Connie Stamos) reflects life in the countryside as well as urban living: the rich tapestry that makes up Greece today.
