The Amaranth, a journal of only eleven issues, was the brain
child of Professor George Thaniel who served as the Chair of Modern
Greek Studies at the University of Toronto from 1971-1991.
Originally meant as a guide to the Greek studies program, The
Amaranth took a life of its own featuring, among other interesting
topics and issues, new voices in poetry both in their original
language and in translation.
George Thaniel was himself a multifaceted scholar and above all a
poet. A brief biography and sample of his poetry can be seen at the
University of Toronto Library, Canadian Poets
