A Land of Light and Shadows: Modern Greek Literature and Photography

GLS 314/HLS 314/COM 347

Info tab content
This course will trace the ways in which Greek photographers, the modern Greek poets George Seferis, Odysseus Elytis, Andreas Embirícos, and Yannis Ritsos, and the Canadian poet Anne Carson reflect on the relation between Greece and photography. Visiting Delphi, the site of the Oracle of Apollo, the god of the Sun, Mycenae, the mythical birthplace of Greek literature, and the island of Crete, where Greek history and geology encounter each other, we will be able to see the light and landscape that inspired these photographers and these extraordinary literary texts.
