ΓΙΑΝΝΗΣ ΖΗΚΟΥΔΗΣ: Άξιον Εστί

Σκοπός της εργασίας αυτής είναι η προσέγγιση του Άξιον Εστί με ερευνητικό εργαλείο το ηρωοκεντρικό μοντέλο αφηγηματικής ανάλυσης που ανέδειξε η μακρά παράδοση συστηματικής ανάλυσης λογοτεχνικών έργων η οποία ξεκίνησε με τη μελέτη της δομής των ρωσικών παραμυθιών από τους Ρώσους φορμαλιστές στις αρχές του 20ου αιώνα και πέρασε αργότερα στους στρουκτουραλιστές και σημειολόγους θεωρητικούς της λογοτεχνίας.

Examine the role of self-deception in the historical poems of Cavafy

This is a heartfelt yet rigorous and intelligent essay submitted by Sophie Prewett for the course I teach to 3rd year undergraduate Classics students at the University of Reading where I have been teaching for the last thirteen years. My course bears the title 'My Mother's sin and other stories' aiming at introducing some major authors and works as well as trends in Modern Greek Poetry and Fiction from the late 19th century to the late 20th century in connection with both the history, sociocultural context and wider literary developments of their period and illustrating attitudes to the ancient past in the work of some selected poets and novelists. All texts are taught from English translations. My students take this course as optional and for the majority a whole new world of hidden Modern Greek treasures is unveiled. Many have called the experience of my course as 'a breath of fresh air' which i consider an ultimate credit...

Examine the role of self-deception in the historical poems of Cavafy

ἐξ ἐρίων δὴ καὶ κλωστήρων καὶ ἀτράκτων

This essay examines that metaphor in the context of the political and war situation at the time Lysistrata was first performed. It considers traditional gender roles in the fifth-century Greek polis and Lysistrata’s inversion of those roles in her weaving analogy. Aristophanes’ comedic purpose in the weaving speech, in Lysistrata as a whole, and more generally across his corpus is examined. In addition, some observations are made about the sound pattern of Lysistrata’s speech and, in a personal argument, a speculative suggestion is advanced that the audience might have associated her cadences with the familiar rhythms of a domestic weaving loom.

Course essay topics:

1. Examine the formal and thematic constituents of Seferis’ poetry with particular reference to his ‘mythical’ and ‘allusive’ method.
2. Discuss the concept of ‘Greek Hellenism’, a term coined by Seferis, and its application to his poetry, as opposed to European Hellenism or ‘Greekness’, a concept popular with the 1930’s generation of Greek intellectuals.
3. Examine Elutis’s poetry in relation to Greek and European Surrealism.
4. Discuss how Elutis restored the image of Greece as a synthesis and ceaseless assimilation of archaic, Byzantine and folk linguistic and cultural elements centred on the Aegean for thousands of years, thus departing from the image imposed by Western scholars brought up in the Renaissance-based classical perception of Greece.
5. Discuss how Cavafy subverts historical validity shedding his own poetic light on history and its events.
6. Theatricality, didacticism, prosaic verse, use of persons as symbols, contemplative mood, analepses (flashbacks) are some of Cavafy’s recurring ‘tropes’. Discuss.
7. The form of Dramatic Monologue as perfected by Ritsos’ poetry.
8. In Ritsos’ Moonlight Sonata what sentiments does the woman’s confession provoke/inspire to you and how these compare to the ones felt by the young man who remains silent throughout her long monologue.
8. Discuss the use of the so-called ‘narrated monologue’ or ‘free indirect speech’ - first used by the French novelists Flaubert and especially Zola and Maupassant - employed for the first time ever in Greek fiction by Vizuinos.
9. Vizuinos’ ‘The only journey of his life’ has been characterized as a ‘death study’ and an ‘elegy’ to the unfulfilled life. Discuss.
10. A confessional personal tone often dominates Ioannou’s short narratives also characterized by an irony that seems to draw on the example of Cavafy. Would you agree?
11. Ioannou’s work exudes a stark feeling of life lost in a modern yet age-old city. Comment.
12. In Tachtsis novel ‘The third wedding’ a male author has strikingly succeeded in writing a book in which all narrators are women. Elaborate.
13. “You will learn more about Greece reading Tachtsis ‘The third wedding’ than from a dozen of histories on Greece.” (The Times literary supplement). Explain why.
