Napoleon Lapathiotis (1888-1944), lover of literatures and arts, is a peculiar example of an aesthete in the Greek literary landscape at the beginning of 20th century. Inspired by Oscar Wilde he tried to live his life as a work of art , but the end was tragic due to his personal troubles ad to the complex historical context. His literary work (poems, short stories , poèmes en prose), although conventional as far as the form is concerned , mirrors the contradictions of his life and personality.
