“Neoliberal Austerity and Left Melancholy”

I have just published in the Michigan Quarterly Review a review essay on the anthology Austerity Measures: The New Greek Poetry (New York Review Books, 2017), edited by Karen Van Dyck.  It is fitting that Michigan’s C. P. Cavafy Modern Greek Chair is participating in a special issue of the house journal on “Poetry at Michigan” with an exploration of current Greek verse.  (I am grateful to Keith Taylor, departing Associate Editor and great lover of Greek literature, for his support.)

This piece may be read together with another review essay I have published on the same poetic trend and generation, and with its companion paper.

They may be all read while listening to the music of austerity.
