Ektor Kaknavatos (Greek: Έκτωρ Κακναβάτος) is the pen name of Greek poet and essayist Yorgis Kontoyorgis (1920–9 November 2010), who was born in Peireus, Greece. Between 1937 and 1941 he studied mathematics in Athens. After World War II he worked as a teacher of mathematics and then as a civil servant in the Ministry of education.
He appeared for the first time with the collection Fuga in 1943. After 18 years of silence, in 1961, he circulated in a small circle of friends the collection Diaspora (Dissemination). A pure surrealist, he experiences poetically-revolutionary the paradox of his Greek fate.
