Dr Angelos Evangelou, Associate Lecturer in the Department of Comparative Literature, has recently translated Greek-Cypriot poet Andreas Georgallides for a bilingual (Greek and English) edition of the collection ελάχιστα περισσότερο άδειο [barely more empty] (Iambos Publications, 2018).
The collection is abstract and minimalistic, yet loaded with autobiographical and romantic undertones. As Georgallides writes in his preface, the poems ‘do not demand comprehension nor do they claim hospitality in the space of meaning’.
The book was launched in Nicosia, Cyprus at an event organised by the Union of Cyprus Writers, and is currently being considered for the Nana (Athena) P. Kontou Award (Academy of Athens, Greece) and for the ‘State Poetry Award’ (Cultural Services, Ministry of Education and Culture, Cyprus).
