The publisher presents this first bilingual selection of Melissanthi's poetry to honour the 80th birthday of an eminent poetess, who for over fifty-five years holds a special place in Greek literature.
Since the publication of her (collected) "Poems" in 1974, Melissanthi's leading role has been forcefully reaffirmed. Her importance for the Greek letters is best demonstrated by the volume dedicated to her by the Society of Greek Archives for Literature and History in 1985. [...]
