This thesis discusses the relationship of the poetry of Titos Patrikios to ancient and Modern Greek poetry as well as his treatment of Greek myth. The dialogue that Titos Patrikios has with his precursors has, as a starting point, the lyric poets of Greek antiquity. Archilochos from Paros and Pindar from Thebes are the two major poets to have an impact on Patrikios’ poetics as an artist and as an individual. What is more, the appropriation of Greek myth may be either direct or otherwise provided via the prism of another author. The reception of the mythological leitmotivs in Patrikios recalls the reception of the myth by the French-Algerian writer Albert Camus and by other Modern Greek poets of the twentieth century, such as Kostas Karyotakis, Constantinos Cavafy and George Seferis. This is a comparative approach therefore between modern and ancient Greek literature, taking also into consideration European literature with regards to the myth.
