Lilika Nakos

Twayne World Authors Series. G. K. Hall, 1983

(Excerpts reprinted in Contemporary Literary Criticism 1984).

A critical analysis of the work of modern Greek novelist Lilika Nakos.  (The Greek form of her name is Nakou).   Nakou (1899‑1988) was one of the first women writers of modern Greek prose and for many years the only woman in Greek journalism. She was a member of the Generation of the Thirties, a group of writers who forged a modern novel in Greek.  The first chapter introduces Nakos as Deborah Tannen knew her and sketches her life, including the circumstances of the writing of her major works and the themes that pervade them. The second chapter surveys her short stories. The remaining chapters discuss her major books in the order in which they were published, with a final chapter giving an overview of her work and its development over half a century.
