Gatsos in Translation
Join our panel of distinguished guests to celebrate the legacy of Nikos Gatsos (1911–1992), one of the great twentieth-centuary Greek poets and lyricists. Among his lyrics, which were set to music during his lifetime by such well-known Greek composers as Mikis Theodorakis and Stavros Xaharkos, are counted some of the most beloved songs of contemporary Greek music. Gatsos was not only a poet and writer of lyrics, however; he was also a gifted translator. On December 8, the day of the new calendar on which Gatsos celebrated his birthday, we will acknowledge both his songmaking and his translating work. This event is co-sponsored by Harvard Library, the repository for the Nikos Gatsos Archive, the Harvard University Department of the Classics, the institutional home of Harvard’s Modern Greek program, and Harvard's Center for Hellenic Studies.

This event will be live streamed to the CHS YouTube Channel
