Description:
Princeton U, 1980. 6th trade paperback printing. Condition: Near fine, very light edge wear, price sticker on rear cover.Translated by Edmund Kelley and Philip Sherrard, editied by George Savidis.C. P. Cavafy (1863-1933) lived in relative obscurity in Alexandria, and a collected edition of his poems was not published until after his death. Now, however, he is regarded as one the most important figures in twentieth-century Greek poetry, and his poems are considered among the most powerful in modern European literature.Here is a revised edition of the acclaimed translations of Edmund Keeley and Philip Sherrard, which capture Cavafy's mixture of formal and idiomatic use of language and preserve the immediacy of his frank treatment of homosexual themes, his brilliant re-creation of history, and his astute political ironies.

In a city of fog and darkness, the notorious thief Edward Shade exists only as a ghost, a fabled con, a thief of other men's futures -- a man of smoke. William Pinkerton is already famous, the son of a brutal detective, when he descends into the underworld of Victorian London in pursuit of a new lead.

What follows is a fog-enshrouded hunt through sewers, opium dens, drawing rooms, and seance halls. Above all, it is the story of the most… Read more
