Among his many books perhaps the best-known are two studies of modern Greek literature, The Marble Threshing Floor and The Wound of Greece, and the later Edward Lear: The Corfu Years. With Edmund Keeley he translated the Complete Poems of George Seferis, the Selected Poems of Angelos Sikelianos and co-edited the Selected Poems of Odysseus Elytis.
