    Emmanuel Rhoides Εμμανουήλ Ροΐδης Δημήτρης Καλοκύρης

    Emmanuel Rhoides Greek was a Greek writer and journalist He is considered one of the most illustrious and reviving spirits of the Greek letters of his time.Born in Hermoupolis, the capital of the island of Syros, to a family of rich aristocrats from Chios who had fled the island after the massacre of its population by the Ottomans in 1822 he spent much of his youth abroad Rhoides was erudite and at a young age had mastered not only the languages of continental Europe, but also, ancient Greek and Latin His early youth years he spent in Genoa, Italy in the times of the revolutions, which were a far reaching repercussion of the French revolution He studied history, literature and philosophy in Berlin, and later in Iasio, Romania where his merchant father had transferred the centre of his business activities Obeying to the parental wish, he moved to Athens, where he printed the translation of Chateaubriand s Itin raires In 1860, after a brief sojourn in Egypt, he decided to live and stay permanently in Athens Later in his life, he would become very poor, especially with the bankruptcy of the family business, and the subsequent suicide of his beloved brother Nicholas He eked out his last years by working as a curator for the national library of Greece But, even from this position he was dismissed in 1902, when he got into a political dispute with the government Rhoides suffered all through his life from a serious hearing problem, which eventually rendered him almost totally deafness.In 1866 Rhoides published his notorious novel The Papess Joanne, an exploration of the legend of Pope Joan, a supposed female pope who reigned some time in the Middle Ages Though a romantic novel, Rhoides asserted it contained conclusive evidence that Pope Joan truly existed and that the Catholic Church had been attempting to cover up the fact for centuries The book was controversial, and led to his ex communication from the Greek Orthodox Church.Rhoides often adopted a clear cut critical stance against the romanticism in literature and poetry and often was poignant and sarcastic to the romance writers and poets of his time Rhoides, amongst his numerous translations, became the first to translate the works of Edgar Allan Poe into Greek.
