Kavvadias Kontinued

Today, just the next page of that piece on Nikos Kavvadias. Jane has suggested to me that for the benefit of non Greek-speaking readers I should give some guide to the pronunciation of the name 'Kavvadias'. However, forty years experience of talking about Greece, Greek, and Greeks have taught me that if you stand in front of an English person and enunciate a Greek word clearly and ask him to repeat it, he will still insist on pronouncing it as he did before you spoke to him.
