A Greek and His Poetry: A Legacy of Poems by Our Immigrant Father
A son s commentary on the Greek poetry of his immigrant father discovered among many papers and memorabilia after his father s passing. An insight to the changing emotions of an immigrant from his arrival in America in 1910 to the passing of our mother (1960), his immigrant contemporaries, and ultimately his own demise in 1980 at the age of ninety-one. The poems display nostalgia, sadness, and comedy as originally written on his Greek typewriter he acquired in 1928 from his handwritten original manuscripts which were apparently discarded after being formally typewritten. Limited translation.
