Greek Modernity and its Others - MGRK3605

Year - 2020

This course aims to examine the marginalised attempts to modernise Greek literature of the beginning of the 20th century as an alternative to what is considered to be the dominant discourse of Greek modernism, i.e the so-called generation of the 1930s. This will involve the study of C. P. Cavafy, K. G. Karyotakis and some of the minor poets of the same period as well as new trends in Greek criticism put forward by younger critics such as T. Agras and Kl. Paraschos.The course will also attempt to draw parallels to the appropriate European context and to take into account relevant developments in Greek political life.
