7 Thu Sikelianos - Seferis: Aspects of a Relationship by Anastasia Psoni, King's College, London. Seferis' poetic relationship with Sikelianos is an intriguing one. It consists of two phases: the first marked by Seferis' negative attitude towards Sikelianos the man, although he admired his poetry; the second, which begins with World War II, is characterised by a close friendship between the two poets. The talk will discuss how their poetic dialogue reveals that, whatever the differences in matters of technique, their attitude to poetry and poetics is closely related and through that will address issues of identity.
