Publication Date: October 10, 2023
Publisher Marketing: In her debut English-language collection, contemporary Greek poet Dimitra Kotoula takes on contemporary Greek society in challenging lyrical forms. In The Slow Horizon that Breathes, a selection from her first three books, published between 2004 - 2022, Kotoula-a poet born after the military Junta-engages modern Greek struggles, including troubled relationships, the financial crisis, motherhood, and the act of writing. Translated by Maria Nazos in close collaboration with the author, and introduced by A.E. Stallings, this volume presents to English readers Kotoula's masterful transformation of private demons into a public resonance.
