Poets and Nobel literature laureates Odysseas Elytis and George Seferis and poets Yiannis Ritsos and Kostas Varnalis, recipients of the International Lenin Peace Prize, are presented in this new book, this time not through their intellectual achievements, but through the eyes of the women, partners and daughters, that lived by their sides.

Unknown aspects of the poets’ daily life are revealed in the pages of this book, accompanied by many unpublished photos. Ioulita Eliopoulou (partner of Odysseas Elytis), Eri and Falitsa Ritsou, Anna Londou (stepdaughter of George Seferis) and Eugenia Varnali (stepdaughter of Kostas Varnalis) recount their experiences with the poets in a spontaneous and unique manner. Drawing on older and recent talks with them, journalist and author Eva Nikolaidou, well-known for her long involvement with cultural matters, collects a series of interviews, that highlights the human side of the poets, as well as the personalities of these extraordinary women.
