The Odyssey (1997 USA )

دریای دیگر- مروری بر شعرمعاصر یونان: جورج سفریس و اودیسیاس الیتیس

بخش اول:

در آن ساحل پنهان
ما چون کبوتری سپید
تشنه در نیمروز بودیم
اما آب شورمزه بود

بر ماسه های طلایی

به چه آرزو، چه امید
و چه تمنایی،
با کدام دل
زندگی را سر کردیم؟
به یک اشتباه،

پس زندگی مان را دگر کردیم.

                           “انکار” – جورج سفریس
