BOOK DESCRIPTION

Last Tango in Alexandria by Michalis Tsianikas examines the work of Cavafy, one of the most prominent modernist poets of the 20th century, through the prism of the history of ideas and their conflicts.

In this case, the tussle between Hellenism and Christianity, which when compared have many contradictory elements. How is this reflected in Cavafy's poetry? Tsianikas combats the foundational nationalist narrative encapsulating a synthesis of Hellenism and Christianity.

The book launch will be conducted in both Greek and English. You can purchase the book on the day.
