The Observatory by Dimitri Tsaloumas



Dimitris Tsaloumas in many ways embodies the stubborn persistence of Hellenism. As a young man he made a promising start as a poet. His writing came to a temporary halt with his immigration, in the early 1950s, to Australia, where he lives in Melbourne with his wife and four children. The first book and The Son of Sir Sakis are not represented here; each is a lengthy continuous work. This selection offers a representative sample from the other books and from a group of poems published in an anthology, Poetry 1979. Although Dimitris Tsaloumas is in many ways typically Australian - a lover of the outdoors and a keen gardener of native plants - his poetry remains obstinately Greek. There is, for instance, a constant sense of remoteness, of distance from the present environment, almost of nostalgia.

Dimitris Tsaloumas (13 October 1921 – 4 February 2016) was a contemporary Greek-Australian poet. Tsaloumas was born in Greece on the island of Leros, one of the Dodecanese islands, which were then under Italian rule (from 1912 to 1947). Consequently, his formal education was in Italian. His later schooling was on Rhodes, where he also studied the violin. He came of age during the Italian and German occupation of Greece, and took part in the resistance, acting as a courier.

Dimitris Tsaloumas PHOTO: DIATRIBE-COLUMN. 10 February 2016 12:23pm. The life of award-winning poet Dimitris Tsaloumas has come to end. The 94-year-old died on Thursday in his birthplace of Leros, Greece. In an introduction written by Philip Grundy OAM, a translator who worked closely with the late Tsaloumas, he notes: Among the post-invasion cultures that we now enjoy, perhaps none is more hardy than the Greek; and no pioneer has done more to make us aware of it than Dimitris Tsaloumas. To be sure, he was preceded by a widespread enjoyment of Greek food, music and dancing, but Tsaloumas showed us how to plumb the depths of the Greek psyche and its basis in literature.
