Austerity measures: the new Greek poetry

Book Cover
Average Rating
New York Review of Books,
Pub. Date:
Since the debt crisis hit in 2008, Greece has played host to a cultural renaissance unlike anything seen in the country for over thirty years. Poems of startling depth and originality are being written by native Greeks, émigrés, and migrants alike. They grapple with the personal and the political; with the small revelations of gardening and the viciousness of street fights; with bodies, love, myth, migration, and economic crisis. In Austerity Measures, the very best of the writing to emerge from that creative ferment is gathered for the first time, much of it never before translated into English. The result is a map to the complex territory of a still-evolving scene—and a unique window onto the lived experience of Greek society now.

display_description A remarkable collection of poetic voices from contemporary Greece, Austerity Measures is a one-of-a-kind window into the creative energy that has arisen from the country's decade of crisis and a glimpse into what it is like to be Greek today. The 2008 debt crisis shook Greece to the core and went on to shake the world. More recently, Greece has become one of the main channels into Europe for refugees from poverty and war. Greece stands at the center of today{u2019}s most intractable conflicts, and this situation has led to a truly extraordinary efflorescence of innovative and powerfully moving Greek poetry. Karen Van Dyck{u2019}s wide-ranging bilingual anthology{u2014}which covers the whole contemporary Greek poetry scene, from literary poets to poets of the spoken word to poets online, and more{u2014}offers an unequaled sampling of some of the richest and most exciting poetry of our time.
