Finishing the Unfinished Poems of C. P. Cavafy
Uncollected Poems & Translations

2015, Shearsman Books

Rather than fulfilling the conventional job of a translator, George Economou uses his poetic disposition to translate and then complete the unfinished poems of the late Greek poet C. P. Cavafy. While Economou does not insist that he is the authority on how Cavafy would have finished the poems, he presents these poems as an artistic vision, written in the spirit of a classic poet.
