"Six poems by Greek, British and Irish poets will be posted in London Underground cars from 24 February 2014, in honour of the Greek EU Presidency (January-June 2014) and in celebration of the enduring ties between Greek culture and our own world. Themes range from love and the natural world to myth and history, with bilingual texts of poems by Sappho and Anyte of Tegea, Constantine Cavafy (‘Ionian Song’) and Nikos Gatsos (Extract from Amorgos), along with poems in English by Byron (‘The isles of Greece’) Keats (‘On Chapman’s Homer’), and the Irish poet and translator Theo Dorgan (‘Bread Dipped in Olive Oil and Salt’).

Poems are selected by writer Judith Chernaik and poets Gerard Benson and Cicely Herbert. Posters are designed by Tom Davidson and are available from the Poetry Society and London Transport Museum. Poems on the Underground is supported by Transport for London, Arts Council England and the British Council. For this special set of Greek Poems on the Underground we are grateful for advice from Dr Victoria Solomonidis, Minister Counsellor (Cultural Affairs), Embassy of Greece, and Constantine Buhayer."
