DepositHellenism/Modernism: Negotiating Modernisms and the Philhellene in Greece

Philhellenism in modernist literature is familiar. I examine Lawrence Durrell’s works, locating him between Eliot’s Classicism (perhaps the hegemonic Modernism) and the Greek authors who responded to Eliot. Through his ties to Greek Modernists and Parisian Surrealists, Durrell contributed to the Anglo-American tradition in a mode that reflects the influence of what George Seferis, the Nobel Laureate for 1963, later called “the Greek style.” This places Durrell at a point of tension between competing movements.

DepositModerns and their Mothers’ Reach

Discusses Tennessee WIlliams’ “Cat on a Hot Tin Roof” and Arthur Miller’s “Death of a Salesman” in regards to Ann Douglas’s thesis of Americans appropriating the concept of terrible, truth-telling, phallicly-empowered “monsters” in order to lay low the influence of mothers whose influence over their children has stretched way outside the bounds of childhood and adolescence. These works are explored as “sites,” are considered such as much as physical spaces such as churches, temples, in which readers program themselves — subtly, slowly, alter their brain registers — so like we now assume is the case with repeated visits “alt” mediums they “emerge” “outside” with different “programs” as to how to engage with “reality.”
