If you want to be called Human - Tasos Leivaditis - Swoon
Brave New Literatures Festival
Leivaditis' poetry remained largely unknown outside his native land until the 1983 publication in English of his collection The Blind Man with the Lamp simultaneously to its publication in Greece. Critics found that despite his presumed beliefs.
Leivaditis' poetry dealt with the metaphysical in a way that went beyond materialism. A reviewer stated that Leivaditis' poems although "merciless confrontations with the real" are "no monochrome paean to resignation" but read as "essentially elegies for existence".
