About the book
The fourth volume of a collection of beautiful and nostalgic poems inspired by the beauty of Greece and the passionate love of those Greeks who, for diverse reasons, have been forced to live away from the beloved fatherland.
Written by a man who was born and educated in Greece, but lived his mature life in the Greek Diaspora, the poems movingly reflect the feelings, the thoughts, and the nostos of all the Greeks of the Diaspora and their good friends. In fact, the poems were written for those dispersed Greeks all over the world and the few Philhellenes who love them dearly, understand their nostalgia, and sympathize with their pain of xenitia.
So, if you are Hellenes or Philhellenes, with friends or relatives in the Diaspora, you will find in these poems a piece of your Hellenic soul and will be moved deeply, especially if you know how to read Greek. But if you are neither the one nor the other, then these poems are not for you. And if you are either the one or the other, but you have the misfortune of not knowing Greek, then perhaps you must first learn Greek, or wait until the poems have been translated into English or other languages, if this is possible for such poems.
