SEVEN POEMS, SEVEN LESSONS
SEVEN POEMS, SEVEN LESSONS

A third cycle of the popular seminars organized by the Cavafy Archive (C.P. Cavafy Series of Lessons for Adults) will take place in 2017. This time the starting point of each meeting will be the analysis of a particular poem by C.P. Cavafy. The seminars also aim to explore and analyse the literary and cultural context in which the works were written. Thus, each poem becomes a bridge leading to a larger discussion, examining the connections with other Cavafy poems as well as Greek and foreign literary figures and artists. This year’s seminars will be recorded and posted online.
