In his first post about the season, “Arété kouri ba patron” [Guadeloupean Creole] which means “Stop running for your bosses”, the blogger denounces a new sport challenge called Relais Inter-Entreprise [Fr] (a relay run by employees of public or private Guadeloupean companies).
I dove to catch the Greek kouri her dress had swept from a table.
Janson describes kouri as "neither gods nor mortals but as something in between, an ideal of physical perfection and vitality shared by mortal and immortal alike."
The kouri did, too; so generic, in fact, that they seemed barely human.
The nudity of the kouri had spiritual implications; the near-nudity of models in swim briefs sold retail.
What I was looking at were marble sculptures of kouri, or youths, from around 600 B.C. They were all nude and all shared the same pose: standing upright, arms down, staring blankly ahead, with one foot slightly advanced, as if in forward stride.
