Andreas Kalvos Poems
by: Nick Hatzigeorgiu • 57
Andreas Kalvos (1792 - November 3, 1869) was a contemporary of Dionysios Solomos and one of the greatest Greek poets of the 19th century. Paradoxically enough, no known portrait of his survives today.
Carried away in the enthusiasm of the outbreak of the Greek revolution he published, in 1824, the first part of his Greek poems, "The Lyre", a collection of ten odes. Almost immediately, the odes were translated into French and found a most favourable reception. In the beginning of 1825, Kalvos returned to Paris where one year later he published ten more odes, "Lyrics".
