“The anthology, which we are presenting here tonight, is the product of love, knowledge and labour. 

It is the product of the life-long love of literature, and especially of poetry, of the distinguished poet, prose writer, anthologist and educator, Mona Savvidou Theodoulou. 

It is a product of a profound and comprehensive knowledge of Cypriot literature. 

Finally, it is the product of many years of reasearching, locating and gathering the enormous amount of material on the topic of poetry that Cypriot poets have produced.”
