Greek prose writer, essayist and translator Philip D. Dracodaidis' first book was published in 1962. Thinking that he has completed his literary work, he rejected most of his books and decided to rewrite those that he considered worth remaining on the market. As from 1995, the following titles have been published: Comments on the Case, Santa-Maura, Towards Ofrynio, The Statue, Τhe Message, The Facade. These books constitute together a literary work entitled Hexametron.
Philip D. Dracodaidis has written three essays: The Century called February, where he presents the fundamental characteristics of the “short 20th century” (so short as the month of February), terror being by far the most important development of that period; The Tale of Literature, where he explains that “literature” as perceived since the Renaissance period up to our days has closed its life cycle; Memory and Memory, where he makes the comparison between the historical memory and the computer “memory”.
Philip D. Dracodaidis translated for the first time in Greek Francois Rabelais, Michel de Montaigne, Baltazar Gracian, Fernando Pessoa, Juan Rulfo.
