Poetry was Louis de Bernieres' first literary love. Here the much-loved author returns us to the vivid Mediterranean landscape of his fiction. Introduced to Greek poetry while in Corfu in 1983, de Bernieres' own poems about the distant past, the erotic and the philosophical owe much to the influence of the great Alexandrian poet. This is a collection rich in sensuality and nostalgia, with an introduction to each poem by the author.
