Futures: Poetry of the Greek Crisis

Theodoros Chiotis (editor)

"Excellent ... Launches a counter-offensive against the inhuman and mystifying terminologies of high finance"

Times Literary Supplement

Futures features some of the most daring new voices in Greek poetry, together with international poets with Greek connections.

These bold, impassioned and critically aware texts stake new poetic and political ground: they articulate what it means to live in a time when capitalism is buckling under its own weight and new ways of living and thinking seem to be emerging. In a time of crisis, Futures calls for solidarity, resistance and poetry as a political paradigm.

Reviews

Excellent ... launches a counter-offensive against the inhuman and mystifying terminologies of high finance ... [Chiotis's] translations have such vitality that they mesh seamlessly with the English language poems.
