Tell all the Truth but Tell it Slant: Sideways glances at issues of female identity

Dec 3, 2018

Greek female authors translated in America reflect upon the complex relation between literature and gender within the framework of Athens 2018 World Book Capital - City of Athens…

"Tell all the Truth but Tell it Slant: Sideways glances at issues of female identity" at the Hellenic American Union

Inspired by Emily Dickinson’s well-known verse calling for a sideways reflection upon truth, Liana Sakelliou discusses issues of gender identity with four renowned Greek female writers who have been translated and published recently in the United States; Zyranna Zateli, Maria Mitsora, Amanda Michalopoulou, and Ersi Sotiropoulos.

What does it mean to be a female writer in the present day? How are violence, boldness and power manifested in the narrative? Why are straightforwardness, narrative economy and accuracy considered masculine stylistic virtues? Are there really gender-specific aims? Or just gender-specific stereotypes?
