Yannis Ritsos' Poems
, translated by Manolis and published by Libros Libertad in British Columbia, is a large volume of carefully rendered verse that interprets Ritsos' visions of Greece on a personal and political level. Ritsos was a noted Greek poet with a legacy of speaking up under oppression. Many of his poems personify the sea, the ruins, and the bleached-white stones.
Diasporic.org is featuring one of my reviews for it, and you won't see it here on the blog..get an early glimpse at http://diasporic.org/2011/06/diaspor5/yannis-ritsos-poems/
Diasporic Literature is based in Melbourne. Yes, most of the site is in Greek, but some of it is in English...and it's an interesting clearinghouse for finding Greek titles.
