An ambidextrous painter-poet and an early convert to surrealism, Nikos Engonopoulos has to be one of the most curious figures in 20th-century poetry. Together with Andreas Embirikos and Odysseus Elytis, he was one of the figures that changed Greek poetry forever. This is the first collection of his poetry in English.
