Focusing on a selection of modernist poets including G. Seferis and O. Elytis, this unit explores the profound change brought to Greek literary life during the 1930s. Together with the analysis of specific poems, it will also examine the epistemological historical and social factors which facilitated this change, and it will explore the reasons behind the belatedness of Greek modernism by comparing it to its broader European counterpart.
