Abstract:

‘Exploring the multiple mediations between poetry and music this talk focuses on Cavafy’s and Seferis’s autobiographical texts. It proposes to rethink the two poets’ selective affinities by focusing on their seemingly divergent perceptions of music. Having as a starting point a comment on Cavafy’s poems by the modernist Seferis, Cavafy’s imaginary landscapes will be compared and revisited through the unconventional philosophy of tango.’
