The poetry of Greek-Egyptian C.P. Cavafy continues to attract new readers. There are at present more than ten comprehensive English translations in print, most of them coming over the past ten years. Yet despite such evidence of persistent if not growing interest in the writer whom Joseph Brodsky characterized as the greatest poet of the twentieth-century, Cavafy’s prose writing is little known beyond the world of Cavafy specialists, even in Greece itself. At the invitation of the newly established Harvard Early Modern and Modern Greek Library series from the Harvard Department of Classics, I have undertaken to translate a generous selection of the poet’s work in prose for a bilingual volume entitled "C.P. Cavafy: The Major Prose." The volume will also include my extensive commentary on the texts, locating them in the context of Cavafy’s life and work, and within the cultural and political world in which they were written.
