Che fece … il gran rifiuto (C.P. CAVAFY)

Che fece … il gran rifiuto (C.P. CAVAFY)

For some people it comes a day

when either the great Yes or the great No

needs to be said. It’s clear at once who has

ready within him the Yes, and by saying it,


he follows the path of honor and conviction.

The denier does not regret. Asked again,

he would still say no. Yet it torments him

that no—the right one — all his life.

The title is a verse from Dante’s work “Hell” and means: out of cowardice he made the great denial
