Course Content (Syllabus)
Interwar was one of the most influential periods for the society in the new Greek history. The societal context was structures by political conflicts, changes, crisis and new creative approaches, wherein old and new, inside and outside, structure and content met and were examined in many ways. This particular period especially is one of the most prolific and overflowing for Greek literature. The literary production in those years has sealed in a determinant way its development later on. However, important changes occurred not only in terms of structure and themes, but also in social position and function of literature. The module aims to illustrate that literature is considered to be a social and cultural practice. The interwar literature’s production remains alive even today. We will try to examine the different ways of production as well as the reasons that sustain this vigor.
