The fourth dimension by Peter Green( Book )

22 editions published between 1958 and 2015 in 6 languages and held by 338 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the dramatic monologues that make up The Fourth Dimension--especially those based on the grim history of Mycenae and its royal protagonists--the celebrated modern Greek poet Yannis Ritsos presents a timeless poetic paradigm of the condition of Greece, past and present. The volume also contains a group of modern narratives, including the famous, and much-anthologized, "Moonlight Sonata." Ritsos, rightly, regarded the The Fourth Dimension as his finest achievement. It is now presented to English- speaking readers for the first time in its entirety. From "Philoctetes" All the speeches of great men, about the dead and about heroes. Astonishing, awesome words, pursued us even in our sleep, slipping beneath closed doors, from the banqueting hallwhere glasses and voices sparkled, and the veilof an unseen dancer rippled silentlylike a diaphanous, whirling wallbetween life and death. This throbbingour childhood nights, lightening the shadows of shieldsetched on white walls by slow moonlight

Iconostasis of anonymous saints by Giannēs Ritsos( Book )

12 editions published between 1996 and 2001 in English and held by 62 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This work of Ritsos, is it a novel with an emphatic question-mark added by the poet himself? Is it a 'roman fleuve' in the sense of Proust's 'Remembrance of Things Past?' Is it a wild prose-poetic fling in a 'sarcastic climate'? Or is it an autobiography of Greece's most human poet, whom Aragon hailed as the 'greatest poet of his time?' And what about the strange title? How are the established Orthodox saints, traditionally decorating the panels near the altar, how are they replaced by 'anonymous' human beings? -- everyday people from Ritsos' neighbourhood; members of his large family and simply inhabitants of Monemvasin; unassuming fellow-prisoners on exile islands and a closely-knit band of friends. All these 'anonymities' are skillfully counterpointed with the hero -- Ion -- and Ion's alter ego -- Ariostos -- and woven into a fascinating tapestry of reminiscences and reflections, vivid memories from childhood and adolescence, speculations on Greece's recent history, confessions bordering on psycho-analytical introspection, and, occasionally, surrealistic dreams. Ritsos' 'Iconostatis' is embellished with an almost Joycean richness of word, including outrageous puns, unprecedented, though ineffably 'poetic', erotica and miraculous flights of language. In the other two volumes, still to appear in English, Ritsos adds the finishing touches to his vast mosaic, bringing his visionary cycle full circle"--Publisher's description, vol. 1, back cover
