This is the second post on my series of famous Greek but mainly Lefkádian poets and authors. The first was on Aristotle Valaoritis , the third is on Angelos Sikelianos and the fourth is on Lefkadia Hearn. The fifth post is on Nikos Kazantzakis. Here is a bonus post by Sententiae Ancientae on Sappho.
Do you have a favourite poet and would you like to share with me?
