La mutevole identità di Nikòlaos Kalas

Maria Caracausi


Nikos Kalamaris (1907-1988), Greek poet, critic and translator, used three heteronyms in the course of his lifetime, differentiated over time and on occa-sions of use. They are: M. Spieros (starting from 1929), Nikitas Randos (from 1930) and Nikòlaos Kalas (from 1938). This last name (which he took from Jean Calas, the victim of a sensational miscarriage of justice in nineteenth-century France) became his personal name in the 1940s, and remained so until his death.
