MGRK2622 - The Other Road to Greek Modernity

Semester 1, 2011  |  Credit Points: 6

Coordinator: Anthony Dracopoulos


This unit examines attempts to modernise Greek Literature at the beginning of the 20th century by C.P Cavafy, K. Karyotakis and other poets, together with a new trend in Greek criticism put forward by T. Agras and K. Paraschos. These efforts were later overshadowed and marginalised by the dominant discourse of Greek Modernism, which is associated with the group known as the Generation of the 1930's. Parallels are drawn with the European literary context and relevant developments in Greek political life.
