Poets in Translation: C.P. Cavafy and Eugene Montale

Poets in Translation

Cavafy, born in Alexandria to Greek parents, was called by E.M. Forster “one of the greatest poets of our time.” Eugenio Montale wrote in Italian and won the 1975 Nobel Prize in Literature. Both writers tackle love, history, and the land. This exploration of poets in translation allows us to consider a broad range of subjects and styles as well as investigate diction, tone, and difference in translation.
