Cavafis. Recuerda, cuerpo | C.P. Cavafis



Brand: Literatura Random House

Antologia del mayor poeta griego del siglo XX, un canto contra el deseo prohibido y una oda a los mitos clasicos.A pesar de ser considerado uno de los poetas mas importantes del siglo XX, Cavafis nunca publico en vida y solo distribuia sus versos entre un circulo reducido de amigos. Esta seleccion es representativa de una vocacion a la que se entrego desde muy joven con rigor y exigencia, una obra breve y minuciosa que desperto la admiracion de grandes poetas de la talla de T.S. Eliot o Jaime Gil de Biedma. El amor homosexual -a veces solo implicito pero cargado de sensualidad y erotismo- marca sus versos, asi como la evocacion de la antiguedad clasica.ENGLISH DESCRIPTIONAn anthology by the most important Greek poet of the 20th century, a song against forbidden desires, and an ode to classic myths. Even though he was considered one of the most important poets of the 20th century, Cavafis never published his works, he would only distribute them throughout a very reduced circle of friends.This selection, published after his death, is representative of a vocation to which he gave himself to wholeheartedly from a young age with discipline and self-restraint; it is a brief and meticulous work that aroused the admiration of great poets like T.S. Eliot and Jaime Gil de Biedma. In his verses, we will find homosexual love, sometimes only implicit but full of sensuality and sexual desires, as well as the recall of classical antiqueness.
