“Hurt Into Poetry: On Poetry and Greece”By Stephanos Papadopoulos
"Cities, in many ways, are the best repositories for a love affair. You are in a forest or a cornfield, you are walking by the seashore, footprint after footprint of trodden sand, and somehow the kiss or the spoken covenant gets lost in the vastness and indifference of nature. In a city there are places to remind us of what has been."
– Edna O'Brien, Saints and Sinners: Stories
