Miltos Sachtouris poetry (english)

Miltos Sachtouris remains one of my favorites poets of all times. Writing poetry during the period of the nazi occupation in the 40s as well as later on, after the end of the civil war. makes his poetry a bit dark and moody. When he was young he adopted the nickname Miltos Chrysanthis. Sachtouris wrote his first poem, The Music Of My Islands, under this nickname, in 1941. He is not as well known as other poets of his times. I have found online a collection of some of his poems translated in english online. You can download a pdf file here saxtouris_english
