The purpose of this project is to offprint the value of the meaning of “voyage” and “sea”, in Kavadias' work. This poet featured the charm of the sea and the need for a “voyage” and transformed it into a work of art which had a meaningful impact and effect on his work. His poems became widely spread and known, thanks to Greek composers, who created melodies of his poems, and thereafter the melodies became widely spread as well. Today, his poems still play a significant part in poetry and singing. Apart from being a poet, he was a sailor, and the poems are based on the life of a sailor during his period. Stories of his, real or a matter of fantasies, inspired by other sailors and poets (Lorca) in which two of his bigger loves dominate, the sea and travelling. As a sailor, he visited many ports and discovered many cultures. This project, apart from the analysis of his work regarding the “sea” and “voyage” as the poet had lived them, follows a travelogue as Kavadias saw it, which tells about all the places he had travelled to, described, and lived while travelling. Methodology: Analysis of texts of the work of the poet with keywords “sea” and “voyage”.
