Presentation of D. Kakalidis writing work in the Panhellenic Union of Literary Writers

On 18th May, 2010 the Panhellenic Union of Literary Writers organised an event during which the written work of the poet and philosopher Dimitris Kakalidis was presented.


Accomplished spiritual people and many friends of both literature and poetry were present at this honorary night.

With words full of lyricism and poetical images the speaker – essay writer and literary critique Ms Eleni Apostolidou – Loukatou presented the philosophical, poetic and essay work of D. Kakalidis, mentioning “the fiery esotericism" that is dominant throughout his work.


As Ms Loukatou pointed out, the “conscious introspective reflection” of the poet “expands and embraces man, the microcosm, but also the universe, the mega-cosmos with its godly content”. Besides, his final aim is one: through continuous broadening circles of notions, by “lines of dense esoteric essence leading the reader to high spiritual exaltations”, he highlights man’s spiritual nature, the realization of which may truly lead man to redemption.

Through his “wonderful, shed with ethos work” he invites to “spiritual alertness since when freedom and independence is acquired a rebirth takes place in the person's soul and spirit", as the speaker describes.



A presentation of the work of the writer D. Kakalidis followed regarding the analyses of Greek poets and literary writers significantly valued by Ms Loukatou as “a work of great spiritual value” and a “globally pioneering spiritual store” with a “vast spiritual significance”. In each analysis D. Kakalidis penetrates into the deeper essence of the work which is consciously or unconsciously expressed by the spiritual creator reading into it in order to discover the ontological notion of the text.

Besides, according to Ms Loukatou’s estimation, the whole of Dimitris Kakalidis’ written work is absolutely consistent with his life which had been “a work of love” as he had always been helping others to realize and express the power existing within them.



The night ended with warm applause from the audience while discussions carried on about the critiques D. Kakalidis had received for his work by the whole literary, poetic, academic and political world of the country focusing simultaneously on its character of being "a poetry - celebration", as indicated by the presentation.
