In Katerina Anghelaki-Rooke's poetry the body, myth, the soul, nature and language are deeply entangled concepts. Yet her poetry is passionate and direct: 'I am not interested in distorting reality when I play with language.' With translations by such notables as Kimon Friar and Rae Dalven as well as the editor, this is the most complete picture yet of this major Greek poet.
