Surrey BC: Libros Libertad, 2013. Parallel Greek and English texts translated by Manolis. Cloe and Alexandra are two contemporary Greek Poetesses with passionate voices that work from within today's human condition to describe its pain and pleasure; two voices so similar and yet so different in their expression of the internal.

Both being familiar with the Greek environment where light is the most important medium, the best cleansing mechanism both poetesses quite comfortably endure the weight of the ancient beauty sitting on shoulders creative and strong.. 1st Can Ed.
