“The Small World, the Great!” in the British Library
With the Foundation’s support, a special event-tribute to Odysseus Elytis took place on Sunday October 15th at the British Library on the occasion of the recent publication of Odysseus Elytis’ anthology “The Small World, the Great!” with music by George Couroupos. The event featured a selection of Elytis’ poetry and prose in Greek and English, accompanied by Couroupos’ music composed specifically for the edition (songs, melodies and sounds) and video projections with a great number of the poet’s art work. Poems were recited by the poet’s partner Ioulita Iliopoulou and John Kittmer, British Ambassador to Greece from 2013 to 2016.
The event was held under the Auspices of the President of the Hellenic Republic Mr. Prokopis Pavlopoulos.
