    Hello,

    I am looking for the translation of «αγών διαρκής», from the book «Οδύνη»:

    Και ο Δικτάτορας της 4ης Αυγούστου -όπως ονομάστηκε- έγραφε τώρα χωρίς φόβο «Αναγέννησις της Ελλάδος και αναγέννησις ιδική μου... Χρειάζεται αγών διαρκής... Για την Ελλάδα, τον Βασιλέα, τους φίλους και εμέ».

    And the Dictator of August 4th - as he was called - was now writing without fear, "Revival of Greece and my own revival...Needs constant... For Greece, the king, friends, and me."

    Thanks in advance for any help!!

    Anna

    "Will require a ceaseless struggle", perhaps. I prefer the future here, but I don't know if it will fit your sentence. Is this the whole sentence, or is the elipsis your own? I chose the word struggle because it and αγών are the usual translations of Hitler's (Mein )" Kampf".

    Perhaps you could also play around with "constant/endless battle". Eg. "a constant/endless battle is required", "we need to battle constantly/endlessly" or something along those lines.

    Thanks a lot, Velisarius and Cougr.

    This is actually the whole sentence, from the book. I like "...will require a ceaseless struggle" a lot.

    Anna :eek:
