Answer to Quiz #5: Grigorios Palaiologos

The answer to Quiz #5 is Grigorios Palaiologos or Γρηγόριος Παλαιολόγος (1794-1844).

His literary work had been ignored for 150 years until the summer of 1989 when Manolis Anagnostakis, head of Nefelis house, published the first lot of previously unknown works, found in a collection belinging to the Vikelea Library of Heraklion. A few months later Hermes published more works.

The two novels are:
1. «Ο Πολυπαθής» [The Passionate One](?) published in Athens in 1839.
2. «Ο Ζωγράφος» [The Painter] published in Constantinople in 1842.

Palaiologos wrote these novels during the years 1929-1939 while in Athens on having been invited by Capodistria to work as a agriculturalist in Greece.
