DROSSINIS, drṓs-sē'nĭs, George (1859—). A modern Greek writer, he was born at Athens, and although originally a lawyer, later devoted himself entirely to belles-lettres. His works, which are characterized by simplicity of language and genuine feeling, include five collections of lyrical poetry and the following prose writings: Rural Letters (1882); Three Days in Tinos (1885); and Tales and Reminiscences (1886). He also conducted the publication Hestia, which he acquired during his residence in Germany (1886-88), where translations have been made of several of his chief productions.
