"Comedy": Yiannis Stigas & Nikolas Evandinos’s collection of poems
The Hellenic American Union is proud to present this evening respected Yiannis Stigas and Nikolas Evandinos discussing their recently published volume of poems titled "Comedy" (Agra, 2021) along with writers Nikos Chrysos and Thomas Tsalapatis, and philologist and musician Giannis Maniatis.
From the publisher:
“99 + 1 poems. A dictionary in disguise, a kaleidoscope for grown-up children, or the remnants of a time machine? One thing is certain. This is a very literal gesture that it declares the rawness of love. Which also explains the book’s Dantean mechanics, that is, how does one learn to walk on a vertical plane, up and down. Comedy is a book that challenges the reader to confrontation in the hope of reconciliation. For if this book believes in anything at all, it is in the power of the mirror. Employing com-positions and juxta-positions, well-honed irony, cool headedness, a sense of humor and, above all, a deep concern for the fate of humanity, authors Yiannis Stigas and Nikolas Evandinos propose to guide the readers all the way to Heaven and perhaps even beyond."
January 28th, 2022.
