All 24 poems during this booklet Ferry praises as “instances of awareness … situations of ways this beneficiant and self-exacting mind's eye registers and responds to his deep knowing of the poems he translates.” At turns heartbreaking, melancholic, exultant, speculative, irreverent, and vulgar, those dialogues render essentially the most broadly fashionable voices of Western culture—Theocritus, Sappho, Pindar, Pessoa, Celan, and Akhmatova, between others—into clean, modern English. This assortment will draw all fans of poetry and ideas into what Warren calls the “fraternity of mind's eye” that Kalogeris has so vividly conceived. With foreword through Rosanna Warren and observation by way of David Ferry.
