Two Outstanding Greek Poems (On a Past Economic Crisis, and on Tourism)



I've referred to these poems by Dimitris Tsaloumas before. I've been reading them again, and I recommend them to you. First published in Greece in 1982, they are still extremely relevant and topical.



I was discussing Tsaloumas' poetry with Mimis Sophocleous at the Pan-Ionian Conference in Corfu, saying that Tsaloumas is as important as Seferis. We agreed.


Australian dual-language edition, 1985.
