Translated from the Greek by http://bassenthwaite-reflections.co.uk/take-viagra-cialis-together Manolis Aligizakis

[tabgroup]

[tab title=”English translation”]

Sensuous, erotic, exact Cavafy does not so much tell a story as create an atmosphere, sweeping the reader away on a blue Aegean sea of longing. The endurance of his work is in his approach, embodying both the immediacy of the Hellenic past and the direct moment of an imagined erotic encounter.

AT THE ENTRANCE OF THE CAFE

Something they said at the next table
directed my attention to the café door.
And I saw the beautiful body that looked
like Eros had made it out of his most exquisite experience—
shaping its symmetrical limbs joyfully;
raising its sculptured stature;
transforming the face with emotion
and leaving with the tips of his fingers
a distant nuance on the brow, on the eyes, and on the lips.

Κωνσταντίνος Καβάφης και Ερωτισμός

ΣΤΟΥ ΚΑΦΕΝΕΙΟΥ ΤΗΝ ΕΙΣΟΔΟ

Τήν προσοχή μου κάτι πού είπαν πλάγι μου
διεύθυνε στού καφενείου τήν είσοδο.
Κ’ είδα τ’ ωραίο σώμα πού έμοιαζε
σάν απ’ τήν άκρα πείρα του νά τώκαμεν ο Έρως—
πλάττοντας τά συμμετρικά του μέλη μέ χαρά
υψώνοντας γλυπτό τό ανάστημα
πλάττοντας μέ συγκίνησι τό πρόσωπο
κι αφίνοντας απ’ τών χεριών τό άγγιγμα
ένα αίσθημα στό μέτωπο, στά μάτια, καί στά χείλη.

Aligizakis Manolis

By Aligizakis Manolis

Manolis (Emmanuel Aligizakis) is a Greek-Canadian poet and author. He was recently appointed an honorary instructor and fellow of the International Arts Academy, and awarded a Master’s for the Arts in Literature. He is recognized for his ability to convey images and thoughts in a rich and evocative way that tugs at something deep within the reader. Born in the village of Kolibari on the island of Crete in 1947, he moved with his family at a young age to Thessaloniki and then to Athens, where he received his Bachelor of Arts in Political Sciences from the Panteion University of Athens. After graduation, he served in the armed forces for two years and emigrated to Vancouver in 1973, where he worked as an iron worker, train labourer, taxi driver, and stock broker, and studied English Literature at Simon Fraser University. He has written three novels and numerous collections of poetry, which are steadily being released as published works. His articles, poems and short stories in both Greek and English have appeared in various magazines and newspapers in Canada, United States, Sweden, Hungary, Slovakia, Romania, Australia, and Greece. He now lives in White Rock, where he spends his time writing, gardening, traveling, and heading Libros Libertad, an unorthodox and independent publishing company which he founded in 2006 with the mission of publishing literary books.
