Yannis Varveris (Greek: Γιάννης Βαρβέρης; 1955 – 25 May 2011) was an award winning Greek poet, critic and translator.[1]

Varveris was born and died in Athens. He read Law at the University of Athens. His first collection of poems was published in 1975. He belongs to the so-called Genia tou 70, which is a literary term referring to Greek authors who began publishing their work during the 1970s, especially towards the end of the Greek military junta of 1967-1974 and at the first years of the Metapolitefsi. He has been awarded the State Book Prize for Criticism in 1996 for his book Κρίση του θεάτρου Γ΄ (1976–1984) and the Cavafy prize (2001) and the poetry prize of literary journal Diavazo (2002) for his poetry collection Στα ξένα.[2]
