Just finished reading this essay on the train this morning, and it is superb! I almost missed my stop. It made me want to get off the train and call in sick so that I could stay home and just read all my Cavafy volumes. (I restrained myself). However, I can't wait to get these two volumes -- now that's what I call an economic stimulus package.


I am in love with your blog! Almost as much as I'm in love with Cafavy! ;-)


Thanks for your commentary on Mendelsohn's new rendition of Cavafy's poems.I greatly admire Mendelsohn both as a gay man and as a superb classicist.
I also like the drawing in your blog.Please could you tell me the name of the artist who drew it?I can't read the signature.


For those interested in Cavafy's poems in Mendelsohn's new translation and who want to know more about his poetics,I send them to the official Cavafy's website where they'll be able to read Daniel's 2002 article on "Cavafy and the erotics of the Lost",which is a dazzling commentary both on Cavafy's poetics and Mendelsohn's own works,since he published this article BEFORE the release of his famous THE LOST.
Here's the website
To paraphrase one his latest article on this poet,it's as good as criticism gets.


Please let me know if you're looking for a article author for your site. You have some really great posts and I believe I would be a good asset. If you ever want to take some of the load off, I'd love to write some articles for your blog in exchange for a link back to mine. Please send me an e-mail if interested. Thank you!
