Pavlos Th. Kagios: I’ll still See, though My Eyes Will Be Closed
A novel, Kastaniotis Publishers
Pavlos Th. Kagios presents his fourth novel. An elegy for the hounded, the losers, the unsung and the blessed, in a Greece where everything comes and goes, leaving behind unanswered questions: Is it enough to say “I’ll still see, though my eyes will be closed” and just keep going? And where is it that you’re going? Are you unsatisfied – and therefore free – or forever enslaved?
Fivos Gikopoulos, Provost of Thessaloniki’s Aristotle University will talk about the author and his work, and filmmaker Dimos Avdeliodis and journalist Maria Koufopoulou will read excerpts from I’ll still See, though My Eyes Will Be Closed. A short film, put together by Manos Efstratiadis, will also be screened, featuring events and clips from films that run through the novel.
Pavlos Th. Kagios published his first novel, And Suddenly It Snowed for Years, in 1995. This was followed in 2000 by I Saw You Being Invisible, and in 2004 by There’s No Freedom Away from You, all three published by Kastaniotis.
