A new translation of the foremost Greek poet of the 20th century, this volume presents the first complete edition of the poems of C. P. Cavafy, the well-known modern Greek poet of Alexandria.

Auden in his Introduction. The translations into English from the Greek by Rae Dalven are wonderfully faithful to the words and spirit of the originals.

16 GOETHE, JOHANN WOLFGANG VON; AUDEN, W. H. (FOREWORD). The Sorrows Of Young Werther And Novella.
Vintage Books, New York: 1990. 0679729518 / 9780679729518 Vintage Classics Edition, Fifth Printing. s Softcover. Very good condition. 
When The Sorrows of Young Werther was published in 1774, it inspired a mass cult of feelings (and reputedly a few suicides) and made its author one of the first literary celebrities. Johann Wolfgang von Goethe's story of a tormented young man whose fixation on an inaccessible woman culminates in tragedy may be read as a celebration of unfettered emotion or as a mercilessly accurate portrait of a man whose dedication to pure feeling turns him into a monster. In this translation, which is recognized as the definitive English-language version, W. H. Auden collaborated with Elizabeth Mayer and Louise Bogan to capture all of Werther's soaring romanticism and moral ambiguity. It appears here with Novella, Goethe's idyll of a passtoral kingdom where the reverence for life transcends the barriers of class.
