> Athens > Jan­uary 21 As part of its “Talks and Thoughts” cy­cle, the Onas­sis Cul­tural Center is host­ing a dis­cus­sion be­tween noted C.P. Cavafy trans­la­tor Daniel Men­del­sohn and Dim­itris Pa­paniko­laou, as­so­ci­ate pro­fes­sor of Mod­ern Greek stud­ies at the Univer­sity of Ox­ford. One of Amer­ica’s best-loved crit­ics and the award-win­ning au­thor of “The Lost: A Search for Six of Six Mil­lion,” Men­del­sohn has trans­lated the en­tire oeu­vre of Cavafy’s poetry, in­clud­ing the Alexan­drian’s “un­fin­ished” works. His visit comes in celebration of the Onas­sis Center’s ac­qui­si­tion of the Cavafy archives 150 years af­ter the poet’s birth. The evening will be de­voted to the con­tin­u­ing – and con­tested – legacy of Cavafy’s work. The event takes place on Tues­day, Jan­uary 21, start­ing at 7 p.m. En­trance to the event is free, with tick­ets dis­trib­uted one hour prior to the event on a first-come, first-served ba­sis. The con­ver­sa­tion can be viewed online in Greek or English at sgt.gr. For more in­for­ma­tion, visit www.sgt.gr. Onas­sis Cul­tural Center, 107-109 Syn­grou, tel 210.900.5800
