Book Description

After more than twenty years as a full member of the European Union, Greece has produced a literature with radically different thematic, ideological and linguistic orientations from previous periods, for both domestic and international reasons. Since literature is considered to constitute both the repository of culture and one of its several manifestations, any attempt to assess cultural convergence in a unified Europe necessitates an examination and evaluation of contemporary literary production in individual member states. The present volume - the collective work of academics, literary critics and fiction writers - investigates the dramatically new trends that have emerged in contemporary Greek fiction and places this local literature within an international context.
