In the quiet town of Thana, Tripolis, a mathematical mind found its way into the enchanting realm of poetry. Theodoros Dalmaris, born and bred in Thana, embarked on a journey that transcended numbers, delving into the profound world of words. His academic foundation was laid at the University of Athens, where the seeds of his poetic future were quietly sown.
For 15 years, Dalmaris served as the proprietor of a private tutoring school, molding young minds and nurturing the intellectual landscape. As the tides of life carried him into various entrepreneurial ventures, his passion for social and political discourse found an outlet in the editorial rooms of ‘ORIENTATION’ and ‘POLITICAL CRITERION,’ two monthly magazines where ideas flowed freely, and perspectives were challenged.
Beyond the roles of an educator and editor, Theodoros Dalmaris is a devoted family man. Married to Despena Rizoglou, he finds solace and inspiration in the warmth of familial bonds, with three children and six grandchildren adding rich layers to his life narrative.
Dalmaris, however, didn’t confine himself to the pragmatic pursuits of everyday life. In 2015, he unfurled a new chapter in his story, donning the hat of a poet. His verses echoed in the halls of National and International Poetry Competitions, where his eloquence garnered recognition in the form of 10 First Prizes, a testament to the lyrical prowess he wielded.
His published poetry collections stand as literary monuments, each a testament to the depth of his contemplations. ‘PROMETHEUS,’ a 343-page opus, lays bare his reflections on the human condition. ‘ODE TO FREEDOM TO GREECE AND TO THE ECUMEN,’ spanning 300 pages, not only traverses linguistic boundaries with its English translation but also finds a harmonious resonance in classical music. ‘WOMAN, THE FIRST BEING IN THE UNIVERSE AND THE FIRST SLAVE,’ a 375-page exploration, delves into themes of identity and emancipation. ‘ETHICAL CONTINUATION, SPACE-TIME, SISYFOS AND MEROPI,’ a 423-page journey, unfolds the intricacies of ethical philosophy.
The poetic journey of Theodoros Dalmaris continues with an upcoming collection, ‘PRAYER TO OUR INNER POTENTIAL GOD OF LIGHT,’ promising yet another immersive exploration of the human soul. Beyond poetry, he stretches his literary wings into prose with ‘HAPPINESS OR UNHAPPINESS TO BE GREEK,’ a 300-page narrative that probes the intricacies of identity and cultural belonging.
Theodoros Dalmaris, with his mathematical precision and poetic flair, crafts verses that resonate with the human experience. As his pen dances across the pages, it leaves an indelible mark on the tapestry of contemporary literature, inviting readers into the depths of thought and the expanse of emotion.
