Ara, poet, and artist from Africa of the South, meets sensuous Ana under mysterious circumstances at the Acropolis in Athens and again at the central library. He is smitten by her intellect that matches her beauty. From a virtual love interest, Ara is as eager to meet her in real life as she'll agree to a first stealthy meeting in flesh and blood, where they fall for each other with a whirlwind romantic lovemaking. As sweethearts, they have to endeavor the times, before Ara has to return to his work on the 'Dark Continent'. However, love does not fade through the physical distance, thanks to Internet communication that keeps their love intact. Ara visits Athens repeatedly with his wife, who suffers from a nervous ailment, but she would enjoy the times Ara cares for her wellbeing, besides she enjoys the warm Mediterranean climate. Ara meets Ana daily, just as her family commitments allow her, as she is deeply committed to him, yet she also shares him with other lady-friends. Physical love is second-nature for her and both lovebirds believe in free love. The poets meet at a gala for Ana's brother who had won a poetry award in the USA, where they meet Cathy, the epitome of an erotic woman, loving them both...

The Acropolis in Athens has captured the imaginations of readers, writers and travellers for centuries and every year draws crowds from all over the world. One of the world's most famous heritage sites, it has long been a national monument of Greece and a potent symbol of western civilization. But the Acropolis is typically viewed in the context of 5th-century-BC Athenian society, while the multiple local and international meanings and identities that the site shapes today are overlooked. This book looks at the meaning of the Acropolis in contemporary Greece. How are global ideas adopted and adapted by local cultures? How do Greeks deal with the national and international features of their ancient classical heritage? How do the global cultural constructions surrounding the Acropolis become part of local practices which project Greek cultural difference?The author examines this historic site as a powerful agent for negotiations of power on an international level. Drawing from a wide range of sources as well as original fieldwork, this handsomely illustrated book will make compelling reading for anyone interested in heritage issues, archaeology, anthropology material culture studies, and tourism.

The Spartan king Cleomenes, having seized the acropolis of Athens in 507 BC with the aim of suppressing the young democracy, is ordered by the priestess of Athena to withdraw from the goddess's shrine, where no Dorian is permitted to enter. Robert Parker uses this little incident to illustrate some of the multiple types of question that a Greek historian may choose to confront in the late twentieth century: questions about political history, about gender relations, about ethnicity. In particular, he takes up the priestess's attempt to debar a stranger from a sanctuary on ethnic grounds, and reflects on the role of shared cults in creating group solidarity at almost every level of society in Greece.

Although he never left his native Kraków except for relatively short periods, Stanisław Wyspiański (1869-1907) achieved worldwide fame, both as a painter, and Poland’s greatest dramatist of the first half of the twentieth century. Acropolis: the Wawel Plays, brings together four of Wyspiański’s most important dramatic works in a new English translation by Charles S. Kraszewski. All of the plays centre on Wawel Hill: the legendary seat of royal and ecclesiastical power in the poet’s native city, the ancient capital of Poland. In these plays, Wyspiański explores the foundational myths of his nation: that of the self-sacrificial Wanda, and the struggle between King Bolesław the Bold and Bishop Stanisław Szczepanowski. In the eponymous play which brings the cycle to an end, Wyspiański carefully considers the value of myth to a nation without political autonomy, soaring in thought into an apocalyptic vision of the future. Richly illustrated with the poet’s artwork, Acropolis: the Wawel Plays also contains Wyspiański’s architectural proposal for the renovation of Wawel Hill, and a detailed critical introduction by the translator. In its plaited presentation of Bolesław the Bold and Skałka, the translation offers, for the first time, the two plays in the unified, composite format that the poet intended, but was prevented from carrying out by his untimely death.
