Reviews from the back cover “These poems, despite memorably overcoming so much secrecy and silence, convince us that our soul-lives will always remain inaccessible” –Peter A. Bien, Professor of English and Comparative Literature, Emeritus, Dartmouth College “ Avaton, Dimitros Bafaloukos’s exquisite ekphrastic collection, inspired and accompanied by DimitrisMytaras’s paintings and beautifully translated by Vassiliki Rapti, is a hymn to the sacred”—Helene Cardona, Award-winning author of Life in Suspension and Dreaming my Animal Selves.

Brief Description

Vassiliki thoughtfully translates Avaton, which is a collection of poems by author Dimitros Bafaloukos. This collection of poems captures anguished love either triumphed beyond wounds or remaining unfulfilled. Using his skills of precision and his pen, Bafaloukos is able to draw upon moments of profound love to immortalize Eros. The poems are amplified by the use of thirteen paintings from artist Dimitris Mytaras, which creates a unique poetic-visual dialogue.
