“Oi Filoi tou Cavafy”

The short-lived group “Oi Filoi tou Cavafy” [Cavafy’s Friends] was formed in May 1934 by Rica Singopoulo and friends and admirers of the poet, including Gaston Zananiri, Georgios Agallianos, Spyros Singopoulo. G. Papoutsakis, P. Modinos, E. P. Papanoutsos and others also seem to have joined the group. They met twice in Cavafy’s flat, setting the goals of the group, i.e. to study and research the poet’s work and to disseminate it to the intellectual circles and to the wider public by means of publications, lectures and translations.
