Yannis Livadas

Yannis Livadas is a Greek poet, born in 1969. In 1993 he invented the «fusion-sonnet». In 2008 he came up with the idea of «organic antimetathesis», the transpositional synthesis of poetry based on the scaling indeterminacy of meaning, of syntactic comparisons and structural contradistinction. He works as an editor, translator and independent scholar with a specialization in modernism, postmodernism, and haiku. He refuses any participation in festivals, literary events, or associations related to poetry, on an international scale. His poems and essays have been translated into twelve languages. He lives in Paris, France.
