George Seferis (1900-1971) was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1963. Truthful and magical, his poetry has captivated both Greek and foreign readers. Aptly described by Charlotte Du Cann as "the unlocker of ancient stones and sea voyages", Seferis was for Peter Levi "one of the greatest writers in this century in any language....From Seferis it was possible to learn... what seriousness about poetry is".
George Seferis (1900-1971) was born near Smyrna in Asia Minor. His long and distinguished diplomatic career began in 1925: he was appointed Ambassador to the UK, a post which he held from 1957 to 1962. He received the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1963. He famously opposed the Greek junta of the Colonels in a BBC radio broadcast in 1969. Roderick Beaton's biography, "George Seferis: Waiting for the Angel", appeared in 2003.
