George Christodoulides (*1968, Moscow) is a Greek Cypriot poet and journalist. He grew up in Larnaka, Cyprus, studied journalism in Moscow and worked for TV broadcaster Sigma in Nicosia. He has been a member of the management board of the Cyprus Journalists Association for more than ten years. Christodoulides’s work broaches the theme of poetry as means of adapting to the world linguistically. His expression is compact and reinforced with symbolism, which allows him to transform political conflicts, including the division of Cyprus, into an unsentimental and poetic process of recognition. In 1996, he won the First State Prize for a New Poet for his debut work. He won the State Prize for Poetry for his second volume of poetry in 2001. His works have been published in German in the “Zypern literarisch” anthology (Embassy of the Republic of Cyprus 2008).
