Manolis Pratikakis (Greek: Μανόλης Πρατικάκης; born 1943) is an award winning Greek poet. He read Medicine at the University of Athens and he is a practicing neurologist and psychiatrist. His first collection of poems was published in 1974; 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. For his collection of poems Το νερό, in 2003, he received the Greek National Book Award.
