The post-war poetic period in Greece is still in the constant process of formation. Greek poets absorb all known trends of modern Greek and European literature of the XXth century trying to find new Form and Content for the present poetics and rooting deep in the texts of avant-garde or what goes under the umbrella of modernism. Such Greek authors-representatives of postwar generations of 70-80th as Haris Vlavianos and Manolis Patrikakis seem to be influenced by different trends, namely by English-American and Greek modernism, Spanish literature and mainly by philosophical trends of Walter Benjamin. Their texts exemplify sophisticated interconnections between literatures of different countries of globalized world we live in. The current research tries to show that the revival of Greek literature traditions, the shift of Greekness, gave a great impact to modernist and, later, postmodernist poetry but nowadays we should rather talk of its limits and changes toward open interactive and intercultural dialogue. All the above mentioned factors are examined on the background of the present-day condition of postmodernity in Greece and Europe with rather broad historical and philosophical references.
