The courses will be focused on the topic of the literary criticism, especially the one which expresses the Marxist aesthetic theory. The emphasis will be given on the Marxist Greek literary criticism of the post war period 1944-1967.
Students employ basic research methods, make use of various sources and examples and practice theoretical writing as a development of a critical-scientific thought at a postgraduate level.
Course Content (Syllabus)
After the end of the Second World War and the Greek Civil War (1946-1949) the request of reviewing issues about art and literature has been raised again. The topic of these courses is the detection of the multiple ways the Greek Marxist literary criticism tried to respond to this request under major contradictions which caused the inner conflict among the Marxists critics (1944-1967). The specific given question is to explore the ways the Greek Marxists literary critics received the Greek modernist poetry of the 1930s.
