Known for his focus on history, political ironies, and homosexual themes, C.P. Cavafy (1863-1933) is the most important Greek poet of this century. George Seferis (1900-1971) is second-and Greece's first Nobel laureate of any kind, who wrote with stylistic purity free from embellishment. A world-renowned scholar of Greek poetry, Edmund Keeley is former professor of English and Creative Writing at Princeton University, and a recent president of P.E.N.
