Odysseas Elytis


My favourite writer is Odysseas Elytis. He was born on 2nd November 1911 and he died in 1996. His real name was Odysseas Alepoudelis and he is one of the most important Greek writers. He was distinguished in 1979 with the NOBEL prize, the second and the last Greek who took a NOBEL prize in literature.


He is very successful because he wrote lots of poems like “Axion Esti”, “Sun the first” and lots of other poems.

Odysseas Elytis is my favoutite writer because I like his history and his poems!
