Passwords: Edmund Keeley on Cavafy and Seferis

Date and Time: 
April 27, 1995 - 7:00PM
Event Location: 
Poets House, Spring Street

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.

Passwords programs are made possible, in part, by a grant from the New York Council for the Humanities, a state program of the National Endowment for the Humanities
