In his poem "Ithaca", Constantine P. Cavafy finds Ulysses's island poor and humble; however, the poet is now rich in experiences and knowledge, and even equal in fame to immortal gods. Cavafy met with F. T. Marinetti in 1930. The latter called him a "futurist", and explained: "The one who is avantgarde in life or art is a futurist." Rooted in the long tradition of poetry recited in the hellenistic courts of Syria and Egypt, Cavafy's work is timeless, unique, and inimitable. It is the very definition of avantgarde.

This #Greece_200 issue celebrates the 200th anniversary of Greece's War of Independence from the Ottoman Empire by presenting stunning examples of the rich and innovative tradition of Greece.
