This volume plays with the complexities of ironic Socratic thought, suffused with the honesty of unadorned iambic verse. Based on a 50-year continuous scholarly and literary interaction with Cavafy's poetry and its Greek and western intertexts, John Chioles has produced an authoritative and exceptionally nuanced translation.
