“Each poem and a vision, each vision and a truth, a potential realization.”


This is a jewel book for Greek Literature; a rare, diachronic, deeply philosophical piece of work with pioneering analyses of one hundred poems of Greek poets. Dimitris Kakalidis approaches, with respect and without any critical attitude, each poem; he discovers its sensitivities, its messages and at the same time he reveals its hidden essence. It is a work that opens “new, unprecedented paths in analyzing poems”, as mentioned by men of letters and arts.
