The city in modern Greek literature of the 21st century: Questions of identity and otherness in Athens during the crisis
Summary:
This master thesis explores thoroughly the illustrations of the city of the post-modern literary setting. Through the examination of three different texts (Permanent humiliation by R. Galanaki, A flashlight in the mouth: A chronicle about Athens by Ch. Chrysopoulos and Something will happen, you will see by Ch. Oikonomou) the frame of the post-modern city is formed, more specifically of the 21st century Athens. Particular emphasis is given to the negotiation of space, to the concept of the post-modern subject and to the interdependence of identity with otherness. Adapting to the concept of palimpsest, Athens appears as a mosaic of subjects, objects and ideas while the post-modern subject is in a perpetual struggle with the formation of his new identity. Combining theoretical tools from various fields, this master thesis attempts to understand the post-modern self within a city in a period of economic crisis. The contribution of this work is to expand the theoretical reflection on the subject and the space during the postmodernity.
