About the book
Vera Korfioti's new collection of poems in her exquisite philosophical style and translated into English by Penelope Soteriou and Manya Georgiadou Constant. "In this new collection of poems we recognize the familiar motives of Vera's poetic sign-language, yet something of import has been achieved. The deeper existential questioning and metaphysical view of life, already latent in her first poetic compositions, is here more pronounced and gripping. She ventures to converse with the pre-Socratic philosophers, to investigate with them the implacable philosophical questions that have troubled man since the world began." (Kaite Christi)
