Fragments d´un monde perdu dans les oeuvres de Yannis Kiourtsakis et de Katrina Kalda
2014 (French)In: North and South: Geographical and Cultural Perspectives on European Modernity / [ed] Enzo Giorgio Fazio, Giuseppe Nencioni, Moncalieri: CIRVI , 2014Chapter in book (Refereed)
The article focuses on the comparison of two novels from a Greek writer and from an estonian-French writer, respectively Dicôon and Un roman estonien. Those two novels attempt to re-member the past of Europe and build an imaginary crossroads between North and South Europe as well as West and East Europe. The article questions the way a lost world is presented to the reader. The narrators cannot catch the missing pieces of the past to reconstruct the story. As a matter of fact, the reader has the difficult task to re-member all the different pieces in order to have an accurate view of a collective destiny. The story of the characters, the relation between the narrator and its creations, the time of Estonia after the fall of Communism and the perception of the Greek crisis with the quest of a desperate north which would provide more safety are in the centre of both novels reflect the important social transformations of the two countries.
