Some of the poetry in here is rather powerful It laments lost love and speaks of a desire to transfer it onto others This is delusional and is suggestive of a man who cannot let go of his previous experience He carries it with him like an overbearing shadow In the present he tries to relive what he has lost he tries to remember the perfection he once tasted The poet is clearly stuck in the past and his memory of one superior love Nothing comes close to this one ultimate experience It s forever in his mind I never found them again mine entirely by chanceand so easily given upthen longed for so painfullyThe poetic eyes the pale facethose lips I never found them againMany of the poems lament this idea Love is gone No new love can compare But the poems also convey the idea that it was worth the cost of a lifetime s longing Indeed it was worth it to know one night of sheer fulfilment I found that after I had read several of the poems each new one didn t really do much beyond its predecessors They all felt relatively similar The homoeroticism elements were also a little bit too much In some of the poems it defined them it was the love that was lost But with a couple of them it felt a little pointless For example in a couple of cases the poet would describe a scene with a man in it and then for no reason in particular he would eroticise it There wasn t always emotion involved so there was little reason to attempt the same effect in these cases It was erotic for no other reason than being erotic I think these poems are the sort that would be enjoyed in small uantities It s a good edition to dive in and out of but not one to read from cover to cover I appreciate the poet s desired effect but after several poems it began to grow a little stale This isn t a poet whose works I will explore further in the future but nor is it at poet I will look back on with unpleasant feelings Penguin Little Black Classic 43 The Little Black Classic Collection by penguin looks like it contains lots of hidden gems I couldn t help it they looked so good that I went and bought them all I shall post a short review after reading each one No doubt it will take me several months to get through all of them Hopefully I will find some classic authors from across the ages that I may not have come across had I not bought this collection

Ah yes Cavafis would have loved Tinder His work has been mostly labeled as sensual and all of the poems collected in this volume are indeed about desire longing and lust He seemed obsessed with men in their twenties which is interesting considering he wrote the majority of his work after hitting his forties But each to their own I have gazed so much on beautythat my eyes overflow with it Undeniably a lot of passion went into the creation of these words but there is to them as well something linked to guilt and sadness There is regret filling these pages memories of forgotten lovers that left holes no one will ever be able to fill It s in those moments that Cavafis poetry felt powerful to me It made me think about how sometimes to love isn t enough There s nothing left but loitering in cheap taverns I m telling you straight I can t afford to be with you Someone else you know is interested in me now I liked the poetry and I liked this collection with some poems really standing out Yet only a few were able to move me or stick with me beyond the pages they were written on In 2015 Penguin introduced the Little Black Classics series to celebrate Penguin s 80th birthday Including little stories from around the world and across many centuries as the publisher describes I have been intrigued to read those for a long time before finally having started I hope to sooner or later read and review all of them
