The collection traces the poetic development of a writer deeply affected by the turmoil of his times, from his emergence on the Greek literary world as a young man of 25, with a series of poems written during the Axis occupation of Greece, to a volume published thirty years later during the military junta of 1967-74. This bilingual edition of Poems (1945-1971) is almost a historical document, chronicling one poets response to three decades of intense social and political upheaval in a nation experiencing the successive horrors of occupation, civil war, and military dictatorship.
