"Non- Greek readers were unaware of the importance of twentieth century Greek poetry until the 1950s when the names of Cafavy, Palamas and then the works of their younger contemporaries, Kazanzakis, Seferis and Elytis found translators and brought their classics to the world stage. An important member of this modern Greek literary renaissance was Demitrios Golemis, an Olympic athlete, eminent doctor but more importantly a poet. Although he was acknowledged during his life time as one of Greece's foremost poets and was highly respected by his fellow writers his work fell into obscurity. This bilingual edition of Golemis' work well restores him to his rightful place in Greek letters and world literature. John Tripoulas, his grandson, has managed to retain the lyrical qualities and the freshness of the original poems." - Anthony J. Papalas - Professor of Greek History, East Carolina University
