C. P. Cavafy, one of the greatest modern Greek poets, lived in Alexandria for all but a few of his seventy years. Alexandria became, for Cavafy, a central poetic metaphor and eventually a myth encompassing the entire Greek world. In this, the first full-length critical work on Cavafy in English, Keeley describes Cavafy's literary progress and aesthetic development in the making of that myth.

Review:

"Winner of the 2000 Ralph Manheim Medal for Translation, PEN American Center"

"Attempting a comprehensive and coherent critical sighting of Cavafy's life work, Keeley classifies and analyzes the entire canon, including the more significant unpublished poems, and in this context comments with sensitivity and clarity on some of the best-known and most difficult poems."---George Economou, The New York Times Book Review

"This book is as marvelous a guide to the imagined Alexandria as E. M. Forster's is to the real one."---Joseph Brodsky, New York Review of Books

"Keeley has performed an invaluable service in tracing [Cavafy's] deliberate arrangement of his work. In this way such seminal poems as The God Abandons Antony or The City are revealed in their full thematic importance, while many others when seen in their proper place in the design take on a significance which they lacked in isolation."---Ian Scott-Kilvert, The Times Higher Education Supplement
