George Seferis

George Seferis, a Nobel laureate poet and one of the most distinguished figures in modern Greek literature, has strong links to Poros. His work Kichli (The Thrush, 1947) was inspired by a small shipwreck at Daskalio islet which he witnessed during his stay at Villa Galini. The poet was very fond of Poros, which he described as having “something of Venice: the canal, communication between the houses being by boats, luxury, idleness, sensual temptation, something lustful. A place for international lovers, providing much magic.” He was a regular visitor to the island with his wife, Maro.
