A literary event--published together in one paperback volume for the first time: the brilliant, authoritative rendering of Cavafy's complete poems, including his remarkable Unfinished Poems, translated by the acclaimed critic, scholar, and international best-selling author of The Lost. Here is the definitive presentation of the great Alexandrian Greek poet in English: the sensuous rhymes and rich assonances and rhythms of the original works that have eluded previous translators. Included in this translation are Cavafy's astonishing final Unfinished Poems. Left incomplete at the time of his death, they are a stunning coda to his canon and a window into his creative process. With an in-depth introduction and fascinating commentary situating each work in a rich historical, literary, and biographical context, this new translation is nothing short of revelatory.
