200 YEARS GREEKS AND INNOVATION
1970

Manolis Anagnostakis’ work “O stohos” (the target) is among the anti-dictatorial “18 writings”

Manolis Anagnostakis (1925-2005) was the literary moral consciousness of the Left, a post-war poet who documented in his poetry the spirit of the era and the moral decadence. The ideological vision and its painful cancelation are the focal point in his poetry. He laid the foundation for the antidogmatic literary critique and created the short-lived but very important magazine “Kritiki” (Critique, 1959-1961.) In his later years he showed us how satire, humor, and parody is the most accurate way for poetry to talk about politics.
