Did you know that?
Dionysios Solomos was born in Zakynthos on April 8th 1798 and died in Corfu in February of 1857. The first important milestone in his work is the Hymn to Freedom (1823), thanks to which he established himself as a national poet and gained the reputation he enjoyed until his passing. The decade 1823-1833, however, is decisive for his later evolution. Then began the most mature period of Solomos's poetic creation, the result of which were the (incomplete) poems The Cretan (1833), Free Besieged (until 1845), Porphyras (1847), which are recognized as his best works. Other well-known works are The Ode to the Death of Lord Byron, The Destruction of the Psara (island), The Dialogue, referring to the language, The Woman of Zakynthos.
The date of his death (February 9) has been set as World Greek Language Day.
