Greek Poetry and Music!
Since we are members of a poetry blog, we should all have the video that follows as a source of inspiration! It is an 'alternative' video dedicated to the Environment where 77 Greek artists perform and sing parts of the poem "Erotokritos" by Vitsentzos Kornaros having as background various parts of Greece.
Considered to be one of the masterpieces of Greek literature, EROTOKRITOS belongs to the category of epic poems, was written by Vitsentzo Kornaros and is constituted by 10.000 verses, divided in five parts. Its name has been taken from Erotokritos, the main character of this poem, which implies the one that has been tortured by love. Initially, the story of the poem appears to take place in Ancient Athens, on the days of King Iraklis (fictitious person) but then the poet adds characters, facts and places that are reported in the Middle Ages and this period of time. The plot is twisting around the love of Erotokritos and Aretousa, the daughter of the King, a love that is being used by the poet as a keystone in order to praise friendship, bravery and the love for the homeland.
We hope you all enjoy it and be inspired by it:)
