    Abstract

    This paper focuses on the impact of modernism on Greek theoretical approaches to the novel from the 1940s to the 1970s and discusses the reception of William Faulkner and other modernist writers by Greek authors and critics. The study also examines the ways the French ‘nouveau roman’ was introduced into Greece and how it was adapted to its new context. By tracing the transition from modernism to nouveau roman, this study charts the debates and reflections on the novel in Greece over almost half a century by situating them in a comparative literary and cultural context.
