Özet

This article examines the influence of William Blake on Odysseas Elytis and their similarities through an analysis of Proverbs and Aphorisms. Odysseas Elytis was considered a major proponent of romantic modernism in Greece and the world. In 1979, he received the Nobel Prize in Literature. His poems are passionate and subtle, rich with Greek history and myth. Elytis and Blake seem to have many points in common, though independent from each other. In the texts of Blake, Elytis recognized ideas and perspectives that he had himself.
