Greek Poetry Elsewhere

Van Dyck, Karen

This article is an examination of the work of two contemporary women writers, Olga Broumas and Irini Spanidou. By focusing on the issues of translation and immigration in their writing I can illustrate the importance of reading Greek, Greek American and American literature together as well as some of the ways in which Greek poetry haunts their texts both as fetish and as a resource for a highly innovative, multilingual poetics.
