Yiannis Ritsos, 1940, To emvatirio tou Okeanou, Ocean’s March, First Edition


Yiannis Ritsos (1909 – 1990) was a Greek poet and an active member of the Greek Resistance during World War II. While he disliked being regarded as a political poet, he has been called the great poet of the Greek left.

To Emvatirio tou Okeanou  (Ocean’s March) is an extensive poem, in which Ritsos, through his love for the sea and
the magic of sea voyages, tells us about life, love, dreams, loneliness and silence. But, more than anything else, it tells us about that irresistible need to escape, about the insatiable thirst for travel.
