Praise for George Seferis 'Seferis' extraordinary gift occupies...the realm of the marvellous real.'
'Rather than an inventory of ruins, or setting up of monuments, his is a poetry of recovery. He achieves this with an uncanny simplicity. The directness of tone feels personal. The pitch works against poetical memory...towards the difficult, unresolved enigma, that of a collective of individuals, buried in the Greek landscape....Seferis raises them up for sympathy and compassion.'
Ishion Hutchinson, The Poetry Review
'One of the greatest writers in this century in any language ... From Seferis it was possible to learn ... what seriousness about poetry is.'
