200 YEARS GREEKS AND INNOVATION
1971

G. P. Savidis resigns from his post at the University of Thessaly for academic and moral reasons

G.P. Savidis (1929-1995) made an impact on Greek literature mainly thanks to his research on Kavafis and his involvement with publishing, critiquing, and archiving. He also taught. His views on people and issues in the modern Greek literary world were dominant during his time. He edited in an exemplary way the publishing of poetry. Before he assumed his post as professor at the University of Thessaly where he introduced modernism in his teaching, he was the director of the Modern Greek-English Review and of the magazine Tachydromos (Postman) which was a breeding ground for many of the most famous modern Greek writers.
