Summary (From the publisher):

In this definitive edition of the work of the Greek Nobel Laureate Odysseas Elytis, poet and translator Olga Broumas has chosen poems from the full range of his career, including his early work when he was associated with the surrealists, to the entirety of his long poem The Little Mariner, as well as a previously unavailable selection of his last poems, written shortly before his death in 1996. Passionately committed in equal parts to both justice and to a life of imagination, Elytis is truly one of the world's great poets.
