Πρώιμη Νεοελληνική Γραμματεία (από τις αρχές μέχρι το Διαφωτισμό)

The course deals with theoretical problems in the history of Modern Greek literature, such as the various views regarding when it can be considered to begin, its periods, its language and the distinction between literature and written material in general.  The students are taught the basic features of Modern Greek prosody and Modern Greek dialects.  The course then deals with writers and representative texts, mainly historical, from the 10th c. up to the Greek Enlightenment (The Chronicle of the Morea, The Chronicle of the Tokkoi, Cypriot chronicles, The Pseudo-Dorotheus Chronicle, The Chronicle of Serres, Chronicles of the Turkish Sultans).  The course also examines the manuscript tradition of these works and their various publications.  Particular emphasis is laid upon practice on the part of the students in commenting in linguistic and historical terms on extracts from these works and on how they are to be classified in regard to genre (where this is possible).  The course also deals with influences the writers of these works deriving from earlier Byzantine authors and from contemporary European writers.
