THE GREEK POET AND NOBEL PRIZE WINNER ODYSSEAS ELYTIS DIED TODAY

Athens 18 March (M.P.A.)

Greek poet Odysseas Elytis winner of the 1979 Nobel prize for literature died a short while ago at the age of 85. He was one of the most important contemporary European writers and one of the leading representatives of surrealism in Greece.

The 1979 Nobel prize for literature was awarded to him for his work "Axion Esti".

He was born in 1911 in the city of Iraklion in the southern Aegean island of Crete and he studied Law in the University of Athens.

Elytis began writing poetry in 1935 and since then he never stopped while he also wrote treatises and translated in greek some of the best works of foreign literature. In his poems is noticed a deep sense of life, and a strength that are being manifested through the continuous presentation of vague pictures connected with eachother through logical consequence. One of his recent works was "Maria Nefeli" (1978).
