About This Book
Greek poetry with Homer’s IIiad as the cornerstone of its origins and the development of Western civilization, has evolved vigorously for more than three thousand years, giving rise, at present, to modern forms of literary expression. The poets included in this anthology bring us closer to these new forms of modern Greek and give an account of the history, the landscape and everyday life throughout the complex twentieth century that has just ended and this twenty-first century that is already in full swing .
