In 2009 Knopf published a new translation of Cavafy’s Complete Poems by the brilliant and award-winning writer and scholar Daniel Mendelsohn. Now Mendelsohn has made a selection of the poet’s best-loved works for a Pocket Poets edition, including such favorites as Waiting for the Barbarians, Ithaca, and The God Abandons Antony. Whether advising Odysseus as he returns home to Ithaca or portraying a doomed Marc Antony on the eve of his death, Cavafy’s poems make the historic profoundly and movingly personal. A towering figure of twentieth-century poetry, Cavafy is a stellar addition to the Everyman Pocket Poets series.
