Translated by Bechir-El Sebai
Introduction by Ghali Shoukri

"Beshir-El Sebai successfully provides the reader with a feeling for the language of the translated poetry without imposing artificial rhythms and communicates Cavafy's vision clearly without sacrificing the rich ambiguity of the poems. When I read this translation, I realized that the painters who had read Cavafy had read themselves into the poems. Terror, astonishment, childhood, youth, absurd wisdom: these are the poetic acts of Cavafy's poems that were carved into the hearts of those artists."

From Dr. Ghali Shokri's introduction.
