Eufemia Griffo

This is commen by the guest editor.
Here we have the sight of dust on books and another association of lost innocence. The tales we were told as children and the tales we pass on to our own, what do they hold? What relevance to our lives today? A question of burning importance right now, perhaps.

» La canzone di Achille, di Madeline Miller – Recensione

Una Valigia ricca di Sogni

Recensione (16)

La mitologia, le leggende, le fiabe, mi hanno sempre attratta con particolare forza.
I miti greci e norreni, in particolare, sono quelli che più rapiscono la mia attenzione.
Ho amato l‘Iliade e l’Odissea, e spero di riuscire a rileggerli senza il dovere dello studio. Per questo motivo quando su Instagram ho visto una nuova idea di lettura – #iltesorogreco -, ho deciso di seguirla per quel che posso.

Chiara (@sorrideredibrutto) e Cecilia (@eccoilibri) hanno deciso di donare più attenzione al Mito Greco, leggendo ogni mese dei libri seguendo un tema specifico. Il mese di luglio prevedeva quindi una lettura sugli Eroi Greci. Complice una promozione della Feltrinelli, ho deciso di recuperare un libro di cui ho tanto sentito parlare – il più delle volte davvero bene – e mi sono persa tra le pagine della Miller, assaporando in maniera forse un po’ diversa la…

“Sagome di carta. Le streghe di Triora” di Eufemia Griffo (Le Mezzelane)

La recensione di Raffaella Tamba, dalla redazione di Libro.guerriero, di Marilù.

Sagome di carta. Le streghe di TrioraRecensione di Raffaella Tamba 

Primo romanzo di Eufemia Griffo, già apprezzata e premiata scrittrice di racconti e poesie. Ed il tocco poetico permea le sue pagine nella restituzione delle emozioni più intime colte ai suoi personaggi. 

Si sviluppa in due tempi storici differenti e lontani fra loro: comincia in un passato molto prossimo, gli anni ’90 (collocazione non casuale che verrà motivata proprio nelle ultime pagine), a Roma, dove vive la protagonista, Cordelia, giornalista per un periodico di viaggi dal cui direttore riceve l’incarico di redigere un articolo su Triora, località ligure teatro, nella seconda metà del ‘500, di un episodio efferato di persecuzione per accusa di stregoneria. Tutte le fonti e le tappe del processo costituiscono i nodi della trama del romanzo, intorno ai quali si sviluppa la storia. L’autrice riesce a congiungere strettamente gli eventi e i personaggi storici con protagonisti e finzione narrativa attraverso…

“Back from the Dead” , issue 53 volume 5 ( May 2020) of Failed Haiku, edited by Michael Rehling, is now online. Thank you so much to Mike for this lovely collection. These are my three poems:

prayer time
the distant chant
of birds

lockdown
filling our silence
new silence

quarantine time
imagining the shape
first leaves

tempo di preghiera
il canto distante
degli uccelli


lockdown
riempiendo il nostro silenzio
con un nuovo silenzio

tempo di quarantena
immaginando la forma
delle prime foglie

Eufemia Griffo is an Italian Kindergarten teacher, poet, haijin, novelist, and essayist. She has lived in Milan since she was five years old. Currently, she lives in Settimo Milanese, near Milan, with her son Ivan and her husband Paolo.

Griffo has written short stories since she was very young and made her debut in literature in 2005, winning First Prize for a short story “Piccolo Lupo, ” (Little Wolf.) It was inspired by the Lakota Indians and the massacre of Wounded Knee of 1890. Griffo has since won many literary prizes.

Her great passion for haiku dates back to 2005 when she began studying this form that she finds so fascinating. That year, in collaboration with photographers and Milanese painters, she was a participant in the exhibition of painting and haiku in Milan.

Griffo also writes short stories, long poems, magazine reviews, prefaces to books, literary essays, and novels. She writes primarily in Italian and English. In Italian, she reviewed two unpublished novels of Charlotte Bronte, receiving thanks from The Bronte Society. She also has a grand passion for Jane Austen and J.R.R. Tolkien.

Griffo’s poems appear in several anthologies and on Italian and English blogs. She publishes her haiku online and in print journals, including: Asahi Haikuist Network, Butterfly Dream, Blithe Spirit, Cattails, Charlotte Digregorio’s Writer’s Blog, Chrysanthemum, Daily Haiga, ephemerae, Failed Haiku, Hedgerow, Wild Voices Anthology, Memorie di una geisha, Lumachine, The Mainichi, Memorie di una geisha, The Mamba, Modern Haiku, Otata, Presence, Scryptic Magazine, FemkuMag, Stardust Haiku, The Haiku Foundation features, Wales Haiku Journal, World Haiku Review, Under the Basho, Frogpond, Temps Libre Magazine, and 2nd haiku anthology from IN haiku Mumbai.

She has won many First Place prizes for her writing and poetry, including haiku. Her most recent First Prize was awarded by “Premio Doscar, 2019 edition” for her poem “Il silenzio e la neve” (The silence and snow.)
She took First Place in the World Haiku Review; Second Italian Prize for “La pelle non dimentica,” terza edizione; and Third Place for “Sharpening the green pencil” (all in 2019.)

For the third year in a row, (2017–2019), she received the honor of “European Top 100 Most Creative Haiku Authors.”

Griffo’s published books are: L’eredita di Dracula: Liriche sull’Amore oltre il tempo (The Legacy of Dracula: Lyrics on love over time), a poetry collection inspired by Bram Stoker’s Dracula: Edizioni della Sera, Roma, 2015; Il fiume scorre ancora (The river still flows), a collection of 25 short stories, Milano, 2016; Sagome di carta: Le streghe di Triora (Triora’s Witches), a historical novel dedicated to the witchcraft trials. The latter has been a top seller on Amazon for the past year and a half.

a nurse picks up
a tiny forget me not

 

this cold in my bones
my mind wanders
unknow places

 

hospital window
a woman sings
a lullaby for her child

 

hospital video call
he tells me I love you
in every languages

 

hospital window
a trail of dew draws
my thoughts
