Kostas Varnalis completes his first literary translations

Kostas Varnalis (1884-1974) was a poet and a critic of profound artistic culture, a visionary of the conjunction of lyricism, satire, and social insight. He published "The Burning Light" in 1922, and from then on, he left his idealism in favor of a satirical and sarcastic mannerism with which he criticized the hypocrisy and morals of the society. His heretic and, at times, grotesque poetry and acute critical thinking made him one of the most multifaceted and interesting Greek literary personalities of the 20th century.
