Yannis Kondos is one of the most notable and representative of a generation of Greek poets (the ‘Generation of Contention’) born at the end of the Second World War, in whose poetry the themes of social protest, existential anguish, death, life’s absurdities, technology and consumerism are presented through vivid images which link the real and the imaginary, the mundane and the universal, the rational and the ridiculous.

Introduction and translation by David Constantine.
