About this title:

Synopsis: Apostolos N. Athanassakis was holder of the Argyropoulos Chair in Hellenic studies and a professor of Classics at UCSB. He is the author of well known translations of Hesiod, the Homeric Hymns, and the Orphic Hymns. He has published four collections of his own poetry. This volume is focuses on themes of "immigrant" and "xenitia". His poetry is powerful, permeated with passion, bears a similarity to T.S. Eliot in rhythm and scope, and contains many classical references which gives it a dimension of vertical time. Beautiful, and sometimes dark, a collection of poems worth your attention.
