Description

A remarkable collection of poetic voices from contemporary Greece, Austerity Measures is a one-of-a-kind window into the creative energy that has arisen from the country's decade of crisis and a glimpse into what it is like to be Greek today. The 2008 debt crisis shook Greece to the core and went on to shake the world. More recently, Greece has become one of the main channels into Europe for refugees from poverty and war. Greece stands at the center of today's most intractable conflicts, and this situation has led to a truly extraordinary efflorescence of innovative and powerfully moving Greek poetry. Karen Van Dyck's wide-ranging bilingual anthology-which covers the whole contemporary Greek poetry scene, from literary poets to poets of the spoken word to poets online, and more-offers an unequaled sampling of some of the richest and most exciting poetry of our time.
