Contemporary Greek Lit

Posted to What Are You Reading?

Hi Sasca, welcome.

Could you elaborate a little on the poets you mention, at least Cavafy & Seferis. I've heard of both of them but don't know their background, history, etc. Are they alive? What are their politics? What would you recommend reading from them?

Also, any really contemporary poets or novelists that you know of? Thanks.
