Aiora Press in Athens offers a new series of translations of modern Greek
literary works. The Modern Greek Classics series highlights the most
significant writers, poets, and works of literature of the nineteenth and
twentieth centuries in English translation. A tour of Greece through its
literary history.

The translations include works by such well-known Greek prose-writers as
Vizyenos, Papadiamandis, and Samarakis in prose and poets Cavafy, Elytis,
and Seferis. The published English translations have been authored by
established translators and scholars (including: Patricia Barbeito, Joshua
Barley, Roderick Beaton, David Connolly, Simon Darragh, and Peter
Mackridge). The most recent publications are: Roides' *Pope Joan* and
Engonopoulos' *Cafés and Comets After Midnight and Other Poems*.

The books are particularly handy for including in courses in Modern Greek
Studies and beyond, and attractive to general readers.
