COSTAS HATZOPOULOS: (From «An Athenian’s Notes») After lying for 32 years in foreign soil, the remains of Costas Hatzopoulos, along with the ashes of his wife, have been brought back to be buried in his homeland. The poet of «Autumn» died in 1920 while traveling from Corfu to Italy and was buried in the Adriatic seaport of Brindisi. His wife, of Finnish origin, then moved to Stockholm, where the poet’s only daughter, Mrs Senta Sloeoer, was married. Hatzopoulos’s widow died two months ago in the Swedish capital, and her last wish was for her own ashes and her husband’s remains to be brought to Athens, her second home, and to be buried in their family plot.
