Dionysios Solomos is considered to be Greece’s national poet due to his important legacy to Greek literature and his national identity. He is best known for writing the poem Hymn to Freedom (Imnos is tin Eleftherian) in 1823, of which the first two stanzas became the Greek national anthem. This is a new edition of the poet’s complete works, poems and prose and even unfinished and fragmented texts and it is published to commemorate the 150th anniversary of his death. In this book you can also find a sufficient introduction depicting his life and works, comments on all texts, a rich bibliography and the famous Prolegomena by his fellow poet Iakovos Polylas. The systematic collection of his works, as derived from the manuscripts, along with the evaluation of the previous studies, makes this book a significant editorial attempt. Dimitris Dimiroulis is a scholar who has studied Solomos’ work and especially the vital role that this great poet played in the development of Modern Greek. Solomos was the first Greek poet that wrote in colloquial Greek. His dream was to make knowledge and literature accessible to everyone and not only to the very few, at the time, highly educated scholars. Solomos lived and created at a time when Greece was under Turkish occupation and his works inspired the revolution.
