Description

Nick Tsavos’ description of his childhood, not so long ago in Patras, could have been a description of childhood in the time of Homer. His stories of the community working together for the welfare of all, of the different personalities, everyday archetypes of human nature that remained unchanged from antiquity, counterpoint the arrival of Western influence that changed an ancient way of life in less than one generation.

Using language as a mirror of society, Nick Tsavos shows how values have changed through time. Understanding the meanings of the words we use everyday provides an insight into what has happened to bring us to the current point of crisis, where people no longer have respect or concern for each other.
