Beschreibung

Nikos Gatsos' profoundly mysterious and magnetic poem "Amorgos", named after a Greek island he never visited and written during the Nazi occupation, is the single work on which his reputation rests. It was much admired by the Nobel laureates Odysseus Elytis and George Seferis, and was hugely influential on the postwar generation of Greek poets.

Portrait

Nikos Gatsos was born in Arcadia in 1914, and educated in Athens from the age of 16, studying Literature, Philosophy and History at Athens University. Well versed in English, French and Spanish, he translated poetry and plays by Lorca, O'Neill, Strindberg, Lope de Vega, Genet and Tennessee Williams into Greek. He died in 1992.Sally Purcell (1944-1998) was the author of three collections of poetry and a posthumous 'Collected Poems', published by Anvil in 2002. A specialist in mediaeval literature, she edited selections of George Peele and Charles d'Orleans and was the translator of a selection of 'Provencal Poems'.

Pressestimmen

'As he did not write anything else, it was as if with 'Amorgos' he indirectly expressed the notion about the nature of a work of art that its core contains a seed of death... In 'Amorgos' the world is what it appears to be - made neither for joy nor for sorrow - just open to man's tendency to capture images' - Eugene Aranitsis'Nikos Gatsos was a war-time poet. 'Amorgos'... is almost all that he ever wrote. It hit his generation like a thunderbolt... He was undoubtedly by this time a great master of poetry in many languages, but it was into Greek traditions, folklore and poetry of the oral tradition, that he dug to find his roots. He was as fresh as a waterfall.' - Peter Levi
