Of Children and Adolescents, the first collection by this prolific poet to be published in English, interleaves poems of brilliant hope with poems of devastating grief. The grief puts one in mind of Gustav Mahler, his song cycle Kindertotenlieder (Songs on the Death of Children). The hope, life-confirming and life-consoling, puts one in mind of the gold leaf that brightens icons. Translated from the Greek by Peter Bien. Includes original Greek text.
