Miltos Sachtouris remains one best Greek poets of all times. Sachtouris was writing poetry during the period of the nazi occupation in the 40s as well as later on, after the end of the civil war. That made his poems a bit dark and moody. When he was young he adopted the nickname Miltos Chrysanthis. Sachtouris wrote his first poem, The Music Of My Islands, under this nickname, in 1941. He is not as well known as other poets of his times. We found online a collection of some of his poems translated into english languae.
