Freedom of the mind
Documentary on the poetry of Odysseas Elytis.
Odysseas Elytis expresses in his works the magical Greece, silent depository of history, of inconsistencies and of disappointment, of enthusiasm and of chimeras. The mythical realm allows Elytis to somehow identify himself with the poetic mode of life. The Greece set on fire by the summer sun! The Greece of the small villages and of the dusty horizons! The Greece of the temples and of the Acropolis, the Greece carved in rock breathes with every line urging us to purification through thought beyond the sufferings of a transient today, beyond the limping obstacle of all insignificant things.

Similar to a priest, similar to an initiated, Elytis ministers in the austere sanctuary of poetry. Perhaps the Nobel prize awarded to the writer in 1979, sixteen years after Seferis, brought a more thorough meeting with the world, with his contemporaries, with his readers.

Yet he didn’t change his way of living, simple, delicate, withdrawn, the lifestyle of a true poet.
