Imagination and Logos: Essays on C. P. Cavafy
This book explores diverse but complementary interdisciplinary approaches to the poetics, intertexts, and influence of the work of C. P. Cavafy. Contributors include Eve Sedgwick, Helen Vendler, Dimitrios Yatromanolakis, Richard Dellamora, Mark Doty, James Faubion, and Diana Haas.
The Shackles of Modernity: Women, Property, and the Transition from the Ottoman Empire to the Greek State, 1750–1850
This book explores the relationship between women and property in the Greek lands and their broader social position between 1750 and 1850. Doxiadis shows that modernization proved to be an oppressive force for Greek women—though in a much more clandestine fashion than perhaps expected in other European states.
Greek Mythologies: Antiquity and Surrealism
Yatromanolakis examines the complex, at times contradictory, responses to ancient Greece in Greek and broader Western European modernism. Exploring the dynamics of ruination and the reconfiguration of fundamental icons of ancient mythology in surrealism, the author shows that Greek antiquity was an integral constituent of avant-garde myth-making.
