On 10 May 1936 the 27-year old Greek poet Yiannis Ritsos saw a newspaper photograph of a woman weeping over the body of her son, a Salonica tobacco-factory worker killed by police during a strike. Two days later the Communist Party newspaper Rizospastis published a long poem by Ritsos. Dedicated 'to the heroic workers of Salonika' and drawing on the 14th century Greek Orthodox Epitaphios Thrinos, the poem combines Mary lament at Christ's tomb with popular Greek folk traditions of resurrection and Spring to create a universal lament sung by every bereaved mother
Diaries of exile by Giannēs Ritsos( Book )

17 editions published between 1975 and 2013 in 4 languages and held by 94 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Yannis Ritsos is a poet whose writing life is entwined with the contemporary history of his homeland. Nowhere is this more apparent than in this volume, which presents a series of three diaries in poetry that Ritsos wrote between 1948 and 1950, during and just after the Greek Civil War, while a political prisoner first on the island of Limnos and then at the infamous camp on Makronisos. Even in this darkest of times, Ritsos dedicated his days to poetry, trusting in writing and in art as collective endeavors capable of resisting oppression and bringing people together across distance and time. These poems offer glimpses into the daily routines of life in exile, the quiet violence Ritsos and his fellow prisoners endured, the fluctuations in the prisoners' sense of solidarity, and their struggle to maintain humanity through language. This moving volume justifies Ritsos's reputation as one of the truly important poets in Greece's modern literary history
Iconostasis of anonymous saints by Giannēs Ritsos( Book )

24 editions published between 1996 and 2001 in English and Greek, Modern and held by 85 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This work of Ritsos, is it a novel with an emphatic question-mark added by the poet himself? Is it a 'roman fleuve' in the sense of Proust's 'Remembrance of Things Past?' Is it a wild prose-poetic fling in a 'sarcastic climate'? Or is it an autobiography of Greece's most human poet, whom Aragon hailed as the 'greatest poet of his time?' And what about the strange title? How are the established Orthodox saints, traditionally decorating the panels near the altar, how are they replaced by 'anonymous' human beings? -- everyday people from Ritsos' neighbourhood; members of his large family and simply inhabitants of Monemvasin; unassuming fellow-prisoners on exile islands and a closely-knit band of friends. All these 'anonymities' are skillfully counterpointed with the hero -- Ion -- and Ion's alter ego -- Ariostos -- and woven into a fascinating tapestry of reminiscences and reflections, vivid memories from childhood and adolescence, speculations on Greece's recent history, confessions bordering on psycho-analytical introspection, and, occasionally, surrealistic dreams. Ritsos' 'Iconostatis' is embellished with an almost Joycean richness of word, including outrageous puns, unprecedented, though ineffably 'poetic', erotica and miraculous flights of language. In the other two volumes, still to appear in English, Ritsos adds the finishing touches to his vast mosaic, bringing his visionary cycle full circle"--Publisher's description, vol. 1, back cover
