Summary

Ancient Thule is an island mentioned by the ancient Greek explorer Pytheas, who, around 325 BC, travelled from southern Spain to Great Britain. According to his writings, Thule is located in the 'far north', six days north of Britain. That is why the name of Thule has been used to signify the most northern edge (lat. ultima Thule) of the world since antiquity.

The poem In This House, included in the poetic anthology THULE, was awarded the First Prize at the 2010 Panhellenic Poetry Contest by the Literary Society 'Halcyonides' of the Municipality of Corinth, Greece and, in December 2011, thirteen of the poems also included in the same collection received Honourable Mention in the 28th Panhellenic Poetry Contest by the Literary Society 'PARNASSOS'. Furthermore, twenty of the poems included in the same collection were awarded the Honorary Prize of the World Poetry Competition "K.P.Kavafis" 2015 by the International Art Academy.
