Helen of Troy and Other Poems is Dimitris Tsaloumas's last book of poems written in English. This new volume contains a wide range of poems, in a variety of forms, shifting in place from the Greek Islands to suburban Australia and on to the timeless plains of the imagination.It is a book of elaborate splendour, holding within it the breathtaking sequence 'A Winter Journey' that contains all the great Tsaloumas themes of the self, its world, its art, its journeys and its failures. And as always there are his great recurring symbols of the seasons, the winds, dreams, the plains and the city. Moving effortlessly between the Greek Islands and suburban Australian, these poems also cross and recross the borders of structure and chaos, life and death, inner and outer worlds, dislocation and belonging.
