Odysseus Elytis (1911-96) won the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1979. With Seferis and the Generation of the Thirties, he introduced French Surrealism into Greek poetry. Kimon Friars classic translation The Sovereign Sun begins with his brilliantly sensuous early poems. It has large selections from his master work, Axion Esti (1959), and includes the whole of his Heroic and Elegiac Song for the Lost Second Lieutenant of the Albanian Campaign (1945). His Nobel Prize citation stated: Against the background of Greek tradition, his poetry depicts with sensuous strength and clearsightedness modern mans struggle for freedom and creativeness.
