"...I was reflecting on the wealth that finally settled in me from my contact with the poet and his work. I was not long in pointing it out. First of all it was the high perception of things. His hatred of tyranny. His patriotism. His passion to defend his personal and national freedom. His creative loneliness. His love of children, even though he had no children himself. His precise love of poetry. His persistent elaboration of his technique. His pursuit of perfection. His mortgages: The nation must learn to regard as national what is true." This book is the culmination of the author's dedication to the poetic greatness of our national poet. Through this work, readers will have the opportunity to get to know Solomos' poetry and step by step his life and his creative process.
