Project description

The project aims to

- describe how Greek romantic novels written before 1850 relate to the adventure novel of ordeal, and expose intertextual relationships with ancient or Byzantine models;

- make text analyses to illustrate the generic pattern and the ideological functioning of the modern Greek adventure novel;

- determine how this fits in with both Greek and European Romanticism.
