Modern Greek Literature in Translation

                 Conducted in English

This course will conduct a survey of Modern Greek Literature (in translation) from the middle of the nineteenth century to the present.  We will examine the authors and their works not only for their individual stylistic and thematic elements, but also within the context of European literary and cultural movements.  As a “W” course, we will also focus on developing students’ writing, specifically writing about literature.  We will devote some time each week to discussing writing issues, doing in-class writing and workshops.

The goals of this course are to: teach students to analyze and interpret texts through close reading, discussion, and writing; emphasize literature’s inherent ability to reflect and understand a particular society by discussing literature within the broader range of the liberal arts; promote and develop students’ skills in critical thinking, understanding and appreciation of the written language; provide a comparative approach to understanding the place of Modern Greek literature within the larger field of European literature; develop students’ writing and analytical skills on the university level.
