Seferis in Light of the Greek Literary Scene at the beginning of the Twentieth Century, throught the Correspondence of his Youth (1919-1924)

Seferis a la luz de la escena literaria griega de comienzos del siglo XX, a través de la correspondencia de su juventud (1919-1924)


Yorgos Seferis’ correspondence with his sister Ioanna is an interesting autobiographical document of the poet from many perspectives. Literature is one of the central themes of his letters, so we find many comments about the Greek philological landscape. Through these comments we can get a clear sense of Seferis’ position with respect to the philological situation of Greece at that time. This can help us better understand his process of poetic formation, which was to be revealed with the publication of his first books.
