Recognising the Hero

Παναγιώτης Κανελλόπουλος

Panayiotis Kanellopoulos (1902-86)

Παναγιώτης Κανελλόπουλος
Τον ήρωα τον γνωρίζεις απ΄ την πτώση και τον δειλό απ΄τ΄ανεβάσματα που δεν τού αξίζει. Του πρώτου τ΄όνομα το ψιθυρίζει στ΄αφτιά του λαού ένας άγνωστος με πλούσια γνώση. Τ΄όνομα του άλλου το σαλπίζει και με τα τύμπανα το διαφημίζει στην αγορά ο εσμός των εργολάβων.
Recognising the Hero
The hero from his fall you recognise; The coward, though, from his unworthy rise. The former’s name Is whispered in the people’s ear, by one Who’s rich in knowledge, but himself unknown. The latter’s name Is drummed and trumpeted to public fame By myrmidons of enterprise.
