The relations between texts of modern Greek literature and philosophy will be explored in the five basic fields that define the complex relationship of philosophy with literature: literature as philosophy, philosophy as literature, philosophical ideas of literary criticism, ethics and literature, finally, the philosophical foundations of the theory of literature. We study texts of Kostis Palamas, Nikos Kazantzakis, Angelos Sikelianos, George Seferis, Odysseas Elytis and other writers, texts of the relationship between Marxism and literature (poems by Costas Varnalis, Yiannis Ritsos, Manolis Anagnostakis and fictions by Dimitris Hatzis and Stratis Tsirkas), as well as critical texts by Constantine Tsatsos, Nikos Zachariadis, Nikolas Calas, Markos Avgeris and Andreas Karantonis. The course is graded with a written essay.
