MURDERESS, THE A SOCIAL TALE

Author: ALEXANDROS PAPADIAMANDIS ,translated by Liadain Sherrard #: 8755
From its first appearance in 1903 The Murderess has been regarded as Alexandros Papadiamandiss finest work. Set on his native island of Skiathos it tells the story of Hadoula, a widow with grown-up children, who has convinced herself that it is better little girls should leave this life when young so that they and their parents should not suffer the trials that inevitably would be inflicted on them by an inequitable society. In the throes of this misguided compassion she first murders her own granddaughter and afterwards finds herself set on a course she is unable to stop despite the promptings of her conscience and her awareness of the consequences.

GREEK QUINTET, A

Author: Selected and trans. by Edmund Keeley and Philip Sherrard #: 4377
During the last hundred and more years the Greek world has produced a wealth of poetry that is as astonishing in its scope as it is in its vigour, and this anthology brings together a selection from the works of the five poets who may be said to take pride of place in substantiating this achievement. Two of them, George Seferis and Odysseus Elytis, are Nobel Laureates, Cavafy is certainly one of the most ubiquitous poets of our times, the oracular grandeur of Angelos Sikelianos companions him with W. B. Yeats, while Nikos Gatsos is a fine lyrical poet and song writer.
