C. P. Cavafy

Born: 1863

C. P. Cavafy (1863-1933) was an Egyptian Greek poet, journalist, and civil servant. He consistently refused to publish his collected works during his lifetime, preferring to share his works in local newspapers and magazines, and most of his most well regarded works were published posthumously. His poems dealt with personal themes such as his homosexuality and often referenced classical Greece and Rome. Source
