About this item
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.
