This course surveys Modern Greek literature in translation from the middle of the nineteenth century to the present. We will consider authors and their works not only for their individual stylistic elements, but also within the context of European literary and cultural movements. As a “W” course, we will also focus on the development of writing skills. We will devote several class sessions to reviewing the essential elements of writing.


After completion of this course students will be able to analyze and interpret texts through close reading, discussion, and writing. They will become familiar with significant authors and works and understand their role in illuminating Modern Greek society within the broader range of the liberal arts. The course will promote and develop students’ skills in critical thinking, understanding, and appreciation of the written language, and develop students’ writing and analytical skills on the university level.
