Meet Greece's National Poet, 'Feisty' 81-Year-Old Kiki Dimoula
"Her poetry - spare, profound, unsentimental, effortlessly transforming the quotidian into the metaphysical, drawing on the powerful themes of time, fate and destiny, yet making them entirely her own - has earned her a near-cult following in Greece. One of her Greek writer contemporaries, Nikos Dimou, has called Ms. Dimoula 'the best Greek woman poet since Sappho'." The New York Times 01/12/13
