Overview

A readable introduction to Greek poetry and fiction published since national independence in 1821, this is the first full-length study to be devoted to the literature of this period, seen as a whole, and including developments up to the present day. Highlighting those writers and works which have enjoyed critical or popular acclaim, it emphasizes the relationships which link one work with another and with its historical context. No knowledge of Greek is assumed and all quotations are given both in Greek and in English. An Introduction to Modern Greek Literature will be an important source for both specialists and general readers, bringing to light a rich but neglected part of modern European literature.
