Please note: This article is in Greek. Dialogue and Irony: Hermeneutical Approach of Aris Koutoungos’ Poetry: This paper aims to provide an overview of Aris Koutoungos’ recently published poetry by emphasising on the development of its principal characteristics. On the one hand, it examines the dialogue with other Greek poets — especially Cavafy, Seferis, Solomos, Sachtouris — and different arts, like painting, music and cinema. On the other hand, it analyses the constant use of irony, which leads to the creation of a notable poetical language. By focusing on the analysis of his first two poetical works (2011, 2014) it is possible not only to examine the artistic voyage of the quantitative and qualitative transformations of the above, namely from the epidermal poetical dialogue to the most creative, and from the single level irony to the demanding irony, but also to trace the origins of the deepest anthropological meaning of Koutoungos’ poetry.
