Dionysios Solomos was considered and is the national poet of the Modern Greeks. Most have associated this title with the Hymn to Freedom. However, there are other reasons that justify it. He is the first to consciously manage to create successfully, a panhellenic linguistic instrument that is understandable to all. His peers and literary critics treat him as the Founder of modern Greek poetry, as the poet "has closed Greece in his soul and feels inside him longing for all kinds of greatness".
