Giorgos or George Seferis, was one of the most important Greek poets of the 20th century and a Nobel laureate. He is noted for his laconic, dense and allusive verse in the first half of the 20th century. He was intensely Greek (a career-diplomat as well as a poet) and ahead of his time, often expressing in his work the dilemma experienced by his countrymen then and now; of how to be both Greek and modern.
