A Study of Modern Greek Writers and Their View of Their Past

To conduct a study of the poetry of modern Greece as it comes to terms with the problem of the past. Consideration will be given to the question of how the poets and centers of the modern Greek nation have confronted the complexiities and ambivalent claims of a history of 3000 years. The literature of Greece under Roman rule will introduce the study, followed by an examination of the themes of revival and renaissance of the pre-Independence era, and of a sense of loss and futility in the poetry of Kavafis and Seferis.
