ATHENS, GREECE, January 2021 - Angelos Kouros’ “A Way to Summer” is a wandering poetic narration of the summer in the Greek islands of the Aegean Sea, like a gentle breeze…it starts with Athens, Port of Piraeus and then the journey actually begins, Santorini follows, Amorgos, Rhodes, Milos and the poetic island hopping keeps on! Destinations which maintain intact our reminiscences for a future return, with a backpack full of remedies of our evergreen pursued sanity. But what happens there? His lyricism is not unbridled, it is controlled, it is sweet, everything he writes has no postcard character; he even has humor. This is very important as it is rare in our poetry to find humor, as we see the reader smiling in a discrete but relieving way. And on top of this smile, on top of the Greek summer, Kouros is building his own world where authentic poetry lives. It is a world that has the ideal size for our dreams. “Poems you read and rejoice because you feel the divine light of summer redeeming you. Kouros describes summer as an erotic feeder account that makes you richer and richer...” - Literature Magazine “Poetix.
