With an introduction by Vangelis Hatzivassileiou.

The authors presented in this anthology are representative of contemporary Greek literature in some of its most fundamental and characteristic trends. Coming from all generations and age-groups and covering a wide range of stylistic experimentation and thematic concerns, they reveal the way in which Greek authors in the 21st century are seeking to find their path, while orienting and also adapting to the requirements of an age which more and more appears to regard the local as being inseparable from the universal and the national as being inevitably linked with the intercultural.

It goes without saying that the literary reality is far more expansive and far more varied than the anthology – as is the case with any literary reality in relation to any anthology. Nevertheless, no one would deny that the work of any anthropologist is precisely to locate and underline from a multiform, multifaceted and multi-level reality whatever best most clearly represents it. And this is certainly the case in the pages of this book.
