Aggelos Sikelianos is a wellknown author in Greece and worldwide. He was born in 1884 and died in 1951. His writing comprises poems, literary work and Greek tragedy. He was a candidate for the Nobel prize. During his life he used to stay at Salamina, among other places. He had a quaint little house near the sea. In fact that's the reason he had chosen to write in that house. He used to put a small table at the balcony and as he was enjoying the outlook of the sea from the one side and a hummock full of pines from the other, he wrote his best poems.
