  Kostas Karyotakis - Phantis
Kostas Karyotakis (Greek:Κώστας Καρυωτάκης) (October 30, 1896, Tripoli, Greece - July 20, 1928, Preveza, Greece) was a Greek poet considered one of the most representative Greek poets of the 1920s and one of the first poets to write about modernism in Greece.
The majority of Karyotakis' contemporaries viewed him in a dim light; after his suicide, however, many began to hold the view that he was indeed a great poet.
In February 1928, Karyotakis was transferred to Patra and in June 1928 to Preveza.

His poetry conveys a great deal of nature imagery and traces of expressionism and surrealism.
Born in Tripoli, Greece, his father's occupation as a county engineer resulted in Karyotakis' changing homes frequently in his youth.
During his childhood he lived in many locations in Greece, including Argostoli, Lefkada, Larisa, Kalamata, Athens and Chania.

 Modern Greek
After poet Kostas Karyotakis (1896-1928) committed suicide at the age of 32, Greek literature was never the same.
The formal precision, technical experimentation, and dark vision of his writings, combined with the deafening gunshot of his suicide, had enormous impact on succeeding generations of poets.
Karyotakis is the last major figure of the Greek modern canon not yet translated into English.

It centers around the suicide of the civil servant and poet Kostas Karyotakis, whose poems Theodorakis set for the opera.
The opera begins and ends with the suicide of the poet Kostas Karyotakis, whose poems are presented as arias in the opera, running through the entire work.
They are framed with texts by Theodorakis, producing a collage of verses of poetry and his own texts, of melodic and grotesque passages, that becomes the opera’s essential structuring feature: the contrast between the arias, the set “tragic” poems by Karyotakis, and the musical farces, the music to Theodorakis’s “sarcastic” texts.

 Kostas Kariotakis, poet
Kostas Karyotakis is a Greek poet influenced by the 19th-century French Symbolist poets.
He born in Tripolis at 1896 and died in Preveza at 1928.
Karyotakis' two volumes of poetry show the influence of the New School of Poetry of Athens, founded in about 1880 by Kostis Palamas, which revolted against Katharevusa, the stilted and archaic official language of Greece, and against the emotionalism of the Romantics.

 INTERWAR [CIVILIZATION]
The poetic climate of the decade 1920-1930 is characterized by a mood of diffuse defeatism.
Poets such as Mitsos Papanikolaou, Napoleon Lapathiotis, Maria Polidouri and principally Kostas Karyotakis expressed with their verse a state of a suffocating impasse.
It is characteristic that the poet who is considered to be more accurately epitomizing the tragedy of his generation, Kostas Karyotakis, crowned his work with a bullet; he killed himself at Preveza in 1928.

In the centre of the town stands a neo classical building of 1910 that houses the theatre.
The house of the poet Kostas Karyotakis is also there and the archaeological museum both neo classical buildings.
