The Nobel Prize in Literature 1979 was awarded to Odysseus Elytis "for his poetry, which, against the background of Greek tradition, depicts with sensuous strength and intellectual clear-sightedness modern man's struggle for freedom and creativeness".

2011 is the centennial anniversary of his birth and has been officially designated as  the year of Greece's Nobel Prize winning poet Odysseas Elytis.

His marvellous poetry continues to be as strikingly relevant today as it ever was and continues above all, to give us hope for tomorrow...

We are of good stock...
