What'S Left Of The Night (eBook)
Sobre o livro
In June 1897, the young Constantine Cavafy arrives in Paris on the last stop of a long European tour, a trip that will deeply shape his future and push him toward his poetic inclination. With this lyrical novel, tinged with an hallucinatory eroticism that unfolds over three unforgettable days, celebrated Greek author Ersi Sotiropoulos depicts Cavafy in the midst of a journey of self-discovery across a continent on the brink of massive change. He is by turns exhilarated and tormented by his homosexuality; the Greek-Turkish War has ended in Greeces defeat and humiliation; France is torn by the Dreyfus Affair, and Cavafys native Alexandria has surrendered to the indolent rhythms of the East. A stunning portrait of a budding authorbefore he became one of the 20th centurys greatest poetsthat illuminates the complex relationship of art, life, and the erotic desires that trigger creativity.
