However, after its publication in 1943, Gatsos abandoned poetry, and wrote only popular songs, for which he was later renowned.Nikos Gatsos was born in Arcadia in 1914, and educated in Athens from the age of 16, studying Literature, Philosophy and History at Athens University.

Well versed in English, French and Spanish, he translated poetry and plays by Lorca, ONeill, Strindberg, Lope de Vega, Genet and Tennessee Williams into Greek.
