2023 is a significant date - 160 years since the birth and 90 years since the death of what many consider the greatest modern Greek poet Konstantinos P. Kavafis
Current edition is dedicated to this double anniversary. For the first time, the Bulgarian reader will have access to the complete corpus of 154 poems authored by Konstantinos P. Kavafis, arranged by the writer G. P. Savidis. This is also the first uncensored translation of the poet's "scandalous" intimate lyrics, which caused quite a bit of controversy. For the first time, the reader will be able to fully enjoy the metric in the original and the rich structural and rhyming construction of his works. A guarantee for this is the fruitful cooperation between the classical philologist and established translator from modern Greek and ancient Greek Ivan B. Genov and Kiril Kadiiski - our great master of poetic translation, himself known and appreciated as a poet not only in Bulgaria but also abroad.
The edition is accompanied by an afterword and comprehensive critical material by Ivan B. Genov, as well as a foreword by Prof. Cleo Protochristova, entitled "Kavafis - the Poet of Alexandria, the World Poet", which justifies his status as "the most significant Greek poet of the twentieth century".
