Greece – 5 Euro, Constantine Cavafy, 2013

Collector coin 5 Euro, 2013 commemorating the 150 years from the birth and the 80 years from the death of Greek famous poet Constantine Cavafy (1863-1933), offered in blister.

Constantine Cavafy is one of modern Greece’s most important poets and perhaps the best known and most translated. He was born and lived in cosmopolitan Alexandria, then – like in Hellenistic times – a crossroads of cultures. He wrote relatively few and short poems, which he worked and reworked with minute care. He used austere means of expression and mostly free verse, far from the conventions of his time, with a deeply personal style and idiosyncratic language, between the scholarly katharevousa and the demotic. Distinctive features of his poetry are dramatic style, irony, sensuality and philosophical contemplation, often inspired by historical figures and events.
