In the pages of this book, the reader will find a selection of poems by a large number of Greek poets, of earlier and later eras, “major and minor”, famous and less known, with whole poems or fragments.

Elsewhere, we find memories of historical events that reach back to the Byzantine and the heroic post-Byzantine eras, the 1821 War of Independence, the Asia Minor Disaster and the battle of Saranda.
