The postwar events in Greece left deep traces on the life and work of the poet Michalis Ganas. Of Epirot origin – from a village near the border with Albania – as a child Ganas found himself caught up in the turmoil of the Civil War, finally spending six years of his life in the socialist republics of the time. He returned to his village for a brief time before moving to Athens to pursue his studies and make a living. Later, in 1978, these two landmark “journeys” provided the subject matter for his Akathistos deipnos (Standing Supper) collection of poems and his prose work Mitria patrida (Stepmotherland), excerpts of which were published that same year in the journal “Chroniko”.  Meanwhile, Athens – the new homeland – begins to trace its own slow but sure marks on the life and work of Michalis Ganas.
