About the book
A collection of poems written by Vera Korfioti in her unique style and beautifully translated into English by Demetrios Hadjihambis, Penelope Soteriou, and Manya Constant. " Vera's sensitivity is as cutting as diamond. Her awareness of the soul's limits and limitless expanse, springing from an awareness anxiety whose sole motivation is the search and expression of man's origin and end, has carried me to the vastness of the abyss and to the heights of the soul's flight." (Hadjihambis) "Vera's poetry is intellectual but not sterile; humanity and humility are consistently present in these verses, and the poet is well aware of opposing forces and struggles to achieve a balance. It is through this struggle that her poetic philosophy is formed." (Soteriou)
