AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'This edited volume on acclaimed Greek-Australian poet Dimitris Tsaloumas is a ‘polyphonic’ response to his work, consisting of essays, reviews and interviews . The book is bilingual (English and Greek) and begins with an introduction by the editor, in English and Greek. The pieces that follow are by Greek diasporic critics (Helen Nickas, Mimis Sophocleous, Michael Tsianikas and Stathis Gauntlett) while English-speaking critics from Australia, England and the U.S.A include Judith Rodriguez, David Tacey, John Barnes, Matt Simpson, John Lucas, Gillian Bouras and Djelal Kadir. The book includes two reflective pieces by the poet himself and two interviews, all providing a fascinating insight into the poet and his work.' (Publisher's blurb)
